Fraport AG has set new climate protection targets for 2030 modeled on the German government’s Climate Action Plan. Th e new climate protection targets are presented in the latest combined fi nancial and sustainability report for business year 2016, titled: “2016 Compact – Gute Reise! We Make It Happen”, which was issued by the Fraport Group.

 

By 2030, Fraport AG is aiming to cut CO2 emissions produced by operational activities at Frankfurt Airport to 80,000 metric tons. Compared with 1990 levels, which is the base year stipulated by the international climate protection agreement, this equates to a reduction of 65 percent. Emissions per transport unit are set to be reduced to 0.9 kg of CO2 per passenger or 100 kg of airfreight or airmail.

 

Dr Stefan Schulte, Fraport AG’s chairman of the executive board elaborates “Th e fact that we have met our CO2 reduction target four years early shows just how successful our measures are. In our latest report, we provide a summary of the Fraport Group’s business performance, as well as the company’s goals, activities and progress in terms of responsible corporate management. Th is encompasses compliance with the ten principles of the UN Global Compact, to which we have been committed since 2007. It was therefore a matter of course for us to also incorporate sustainable development goals – which are part of the UN’s 2030 Agenda – in our report.”
