The Airport Authority (AA) hosted the 35th Airports Council International (ACI) World Environment Standing Committee Meeting on 8 and 9 March. Twenty three airport environmental managers, ACI representatives and aviation environmental experts attended the two-day meeting to discuss the common and emerging environmental issues faced by the airport sector such as climate change, air quality and noise management.

AA CEO Fred Lam delivered a welcome remark at the meeting and attended lunch on the first day of the meeting. In addition, the AA shared its insights and experience in Green Airport Design Strategy and setting a science-based carbon reduction target. The participants also joined a tour of HKIA and a boat trip to Tai O to see the Chinese White Dolphins and enjoy a local seafood dinner.
