ANAC presents the highlights of the Sustainable Airports project

Brazil’s Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) released on 03/16, in a webinar on sustainability in airport management, the results of the 3rd edition of the Sustainable Airports project – a program that seeks to encourage good environmental management practices in airport environments and the recognition of initiatives proactive actions linked to the sustainability of air operations. The airports of Salvador, BA, Belem, PA, Montes Claros, MG, and Campo de Marte, SP were the highlights among the 20 participating airports. The event is available on the official ANAC YouTube channel. The project, which had its first edition launched in 2019, seeks to encourage debate and reflection on sustainability by measuring the Environmental Performance Index (IDA in Portuguese) of Brazilian airports. The 2021 edition had 32 evaluation criteria, which have different weights according to their importance in relation to the other criteria. The assessment is based on criteria that consider airport management in the following environmental issues: electricity, water resources, waste, climate change, local air quality, aeronautical noise, and organizational management. The airports signed up voluntarily and started to compete in groups according to the number of passengers processed annually, following the provisions of the Brazilian Civil Aviation Regulation (RBAC in Portuguese) #153. The classification occurred by levels, being: “first class”, for airports with a score greater than or equal to the simple average of their group; and “business class”, for airports with a score lower than the average, and participants with a final score lower than 25% are excluded from the classification. – https://aeroin.net/anac-apresenta-os-destaques-do-projeto-aeroportos-sustentaveis/
