Bristol Airport has announced its aim to become the ‘first net zero airport in the UK’.
It has reduced the time scale to become carbon-neutral by four years, from 2025 to the end of 2021 and has pledged to achieve net zero by 2030.
It has set three main commitments – to have a net zero airfield, net zero buildings and operate a net zero fleet of vehicles by the end of the decade.
Marvin Rees, Bristol Mayor, commented: “I welcome Bristol Airport’s ambition to drive carbon-neutrality and environmental sustainability into the heart of its future and to show leadership on how the sector can green its impact and deliver on testing carbon goals.
“In an increasingly interconnected world we must harness technology and innovation to reach our goal of carbon-neutrality. Bristol’s aerospace sector is well placed to continue to lead on solutions to this challenge.”
