Perth Airport commits to carbon-neutrality by 2030

Perth Airport has committed to becoming carbon-neutral by 2030.

It has set a new Environment, Social, People and Governance (ESPG) strategy, setting targets to cut its Scope 1 and 2 emissions.

The airport has revealed its carbon savings from this strategy will have the equivalent impact of taking 6,300 cars off the road for a year.

Its targets include using 50% renewable energy across its estate, a 75% increase in recycling rates, a 20% decrease in waste to landfill rates and an effort to preserve biodiversity in wetlands and indigenous areas all by 2030.

Kevin Brown, Perth Airport CEO, said: “Climate change is a global challenge which requires us all to act. We all need to be a part of the solution and we are already laying the groundwork that will set us on the path toward our own operations becoming carbon neutral by 2030.”
