Environmental management

The purpose of environmental management systems is to systematically organize, manage and monitor operational environmental protection within the respective company. They are also intended to guide and assist the management and those with operational responsibility in carrying out their tasks and improving environmental performance.

The functionality and effect of the environmental management systems is continuously monitored and audited by external certification bodies (ISO 14001) and environmental auditors (EMAS). Furthermore, Fraport AG and some of its Group airports have signed up to the global airport system for reduction of  CO2 emissions (Airport Carbon Accreditation).

Until 2019, the title of our Environmental Statement indicated the year in which the report was published. As of 2020, we have adapted our environmental reporting to the general reporting standards of the Fraport Group. Therefore, the report title now indicates the respective year being reported. For the transition year 2019, there are thus two reports with “2019” in their title: the abridged Environmental Statement 2019 (released in 2019, but referring to 2018); and the comprehensive Environmental Statement 2019 (covering the year 2019, in line with the new standard).




Sustainability Reports

We are publishing an extensive report every three years, the following two years a short version, respectively.

Environmental Management in our Group

The environmental policy established in 2008 commits all Group companies to sustainable, careful and considerate handling of natural resources and the environment as well as continuous improvement of their environmental performance. To this end, environmental management systems are in place at the parent company and at all affiliated companies that must be rated as “fundamentally environmentally relevant” on account of their portfolios. Almost all of these management systems are certified under the applicable standard ISO 14001 or even under the European  EMAS  Regulation. Companies newly incorporated in the Group are asked during the acquisition stage to introduce systems of this kind in the future if they do not exist already.

The environmental policy includes a commitment to report each year on environmental activities and performance. The sustainability report is the Group's method of reporting, while the parent company and Frankfurt Airport additionally report via the EMAS environmental statements. For this purpose, the Group companies submit an extensive catalog of environmental performance indicators to the parent company once a year that combines these indicators for reporting and provides details of projects undertaken and improvements attained in the previous year. In addition, individual Group companies have developed or maintained their own reporting (Lima and Ljubljana Airports).
