Setting a Long-term Airport-wide Carbon Reduction Target

11  May  2020

As HKIA is reaching the end of its current carbon reduction target, the Airport Authority (AA) launched a study to set a new 15-year airport-wide carbon reduction target in April 2020. While the AA’s current and previous five-year carbon reduction pledges aim to reduce the carbon intensity of airport operations, the HKIA’s 2035 target will focus on achieving absolute emissions.

The new target will take into account various emissions reductions opportunities, including accelerating the transition from a diesel to an electric-powered airside vehicle and ground services equipment fleet, and seeking low carbon electricity from the grid.

In brief, the study will encourage the whole airport community and the key energy parties to work together to achieve decarbonisation as a key component of Hong Kong’s low carbon economy.
