The commitments and actions of Grenoble Alpes Isère Airport and the VINCI Airports network

Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA)

On 4th December 2016 Grenoble Alpes Isère Airport received its first ACA accreditation, which will be renewed each year.

Airport Carbon Accreditation is the only institutional certification programme in airport carbon emissions management. It recognises and certifies the initiatives taken by airports in carbon emission management and reduction, and has 4 levels of accreditation: mapping, reduction, optimisation and neutrality.

Level 1, ‘Mapping’, comprises the evaluation of the carbon footprint and an external audit of data.

This accreditation reflects the commitment taken by VINCI Airports to certify all of the airports in the group with the Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA).
