Impact, sources and responsibility


Stay informed

Aviation and the operation of an airport impact the environment in a wide variety of ways. Fraport AG believes it has a responsibility to meet these environmental requirements.

Fraport AG’s executive board approved a Group-wide environmental policy in 2008, which obliges all Group companies to adopt a sustainable, considerate and careful approach to natural resources and the environment and continuously improve their environmental performance.

At Frankfurt Airport, we do this via eleven environmental aspects.

Our strategy for climate protection

75000 t carbon dioxide emissions until 2030
0.001 t carbon dioxide emissions until 2045

Fraport AG will significantly reduce  CO2  emissions within the Group and at Frankfurt Airport by 2030. The aim is to cut emissions to 120,000 metric tons of  CO2 per year in the Group as a whole and to 75,000 metric tons at Frankfurt Airport. Fraport’s targets for its Group airports are based on those set by the countries in which they are located. Frankfurt Airport, for instance, is taking its 2030 target from the German government’s Climate Action Plan to 2045, by which time  CO2  emissions at the airport are to be cut to zero.
