Clear strategy for climate protection

Fraport AG will significantly reduce CO2  emissions at Frankfurt Airport and across the Group by 2030. The aim is to cut emissions to 95,000 metric tons of CO2 per year in the Group as a whole and to 50,000 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. At Frankfurt Airport, Fraport AG has managed to lower CO2 emissions by 50 per cent since 1990, the base year under international climate agreements, despite an ever-growing need for energy. This was achieved by implementing numerous projects focused on lowering the carbon footprint.

Carbon emissions for the entire corporate group shall be reduced to zero by the year 2045.



Essentially, Fraport is leveraging savings in four areas:

It was the Fraport Group that co-developed the Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) scheme. This is a scheme engineered by the Airports Council International Europe (ACI Europe) with the aim of encouraging as many European airports as possible to comprehensively manage their CO2 emissions and become carbon neutral.The ACA scheme has now become a global industry standard. 

In 2009, Fraport was the first airport operator in the world to obtain this certificate for Frankfurt Airport. Every year since then, the high optimization level has been recertified, for the eleventh year in succession in 2020.

The energy saved in a year could power the floodlight at the Allianz Arena in Munich for over 2.5 years.       

You could provide 8,600 households per year with the saved power from our terminals.

It generates around 1.5 million kilowatt hours of electricity a year.

This applies both to passenger vehicles as well as special ground handling vehicles on the apron.
