The environment Values, objectives, programs

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.

The Executive Board of Fraport AG 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.

Clear strategy and objective

Fraport will significantly reduce CO₂ emissions at Frankfurt Airport and across the Group by 2030. The aim is to cut emissions to 95,000 tonnes 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.
Frankfurt Airport has taken its 2030 target from the German government’s 2050 Climate Action Plan. By 2045, Fraport intends to reduce its carbon emissions at Frankfurt Airport and for the Fraport Group to zero.
