India : The first ‘carbon neutral’ airport in Asia Pacific


The Indira Gandhi International Airport in India has just bagged its first, one and only Asia Pacific ‘Carbon Neutral’ status for the implementation of green building features, solar power plants, and rainwater harvesting system to help reduce and offset carbon emissions.

Managed by private sector operator Delhi International Airport Ltd (DIAL),  the Indira Gandhi International Airport is one of less than 25 airports in the world achieving this carbon neutral status.

Prabhakara Rao, CEO of Delhi International Airport explained that with this status, they have set a new standard for other airports in India and is now working on energy conservation and exploring alternative solution generating green energy. This was said during a speech he delivered at the Airport Carbon Accreditation certificate presentation ceremony in Montreal, Canada this month.
