Edinburgh Airport is continuing to demonstrate its commitment to climate change after being placed highest out of any UK airport in the second Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) Energy Efficiency League Table, published annually by the Environment Agency.
The CRC scheme, which aims to significantly lower UK carbon emissions, sees participating companies annually report their energy consumption to receive a score which represents their efforts in reducing emissions.
David Wilson, Edinburgh Airport’s Chief Operating Officer, said:- “As Scotland’s busiest Airport we are committed to being as energy efficient as possible. The fact that we have been ranked the highest of all the UK airports is a great boost and helps highlight the work we do to make our airport as carbon conscious as possible.”
In 2012 Edinburgh Airport also successfully gained a Carbon Masters Standard for recognition of its reduction in carbon emissions by 3% compared to the two years previous. It is the first airport in Scotland to be awarded with such a standard.
