Hermes Acquires Certification for Reduction of Emissions

Hermes Acquires Certification for Reduction of Emissions

Just one year after the acquisition of the ACI Airport Carbon Accreditation Level 1 “Mapping”, Hermes has announced the acquisition of the Level 2 certification for the reduction of its emissions.

The ACA (Airport Carbon Accreditation) is issued by the ACI (International Council of Airports) and focuses on efforts to map, calculate, reduce and offset the carbon dioxide emissions caused by airports’ operation across the globe.

The 2nd Level of ACI's accreditation, obtained by Hermes, includes the verification by an external approved auditor of all carbon dioxide emissions directly controlled by Hermes Airports, combined with the efforts made since 2010 in the energy saving field.

In particular, the 2nd Level of accreditation confirms the steady and long-term reduction of carbon dioxide emissions whilst at the same time confirms the occurrence of energy policy, strategy and an effective action plan aiming at further reduction of carbon dioxide emissions with specific targets.

In addition, it should be noted that both airports of Cyprus have already commenced the necessary procedures and actions aiming towards reaching the 3rd Level of CO₂ emissions optimization. In this context, Hermes will expand its efforts to all other companies and services operating at Cyprus airports, who through the operation of their function "produce" carbon dioxide emissions.

Overall, the ACA certification includes four Levels of implementation and aims towards the development of collective efforts on an international level for the reduction of carbon emissions and environmental protection.
