Green Airports Recognition 2019 looks at the achievements of airports in projects of environmental interest and performance. Established by ACI Asia-Pacific with the support of its regional environmental committee to help minimize the impact of the aviation industry on the global environment and to publicly recognize the member airports who have made a significant contribution in their environmental projects.
ACI Asia-Pacific has now released the results for this yearâ€™s theme â€“ Green Airport Infrastructure. There were 19 submissions this year, which represents 17% of the regionâ€™s flight passenger traffic. There are three categories defined by passenger numbers, and three recognitions per category as follows:
Less than 10 million passengers per year
Platinum â€“ Adelaide Airport
Gold â€“ Al Bateen Executive Airport
Silver â€“ Nadi International Airport
Nadi International Airport also became the first airport to attain Level 1 Airports Carbon Accreditation â€“ a separate ACI programme that recognizes efforts to reduce CO2 emissions.

Gold â€“ Sydney Airport
Silver â€“ Rajiv Gandhi International Airport
