KUALA LUMPUR, May 6 (Bernama) -- KL International Airport (KLIA)'s main terminal is now certified with the Airport Carbon Accreditation by the Airports Council International (ACI).
Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd said KLIA has reduced its carbon emission intensity by 42.86 per cent.
"One of the pillars in the company's strategy themes and objectives is sustainability.
"Therefore, we consider this accreditation an important milestone in our pursuit for environmental excellence and sustainable future," said MAHB Managing Director Datuk Badlisham Ghazali in a statement.
The certificate was presented by the President of ACI Asia-Pacific Dennis Chant to Badlisham at the presentation ceremony held in Jordan last week.
Launched in June 2009, Airport Carbon Accreditation is the only institutionally endorsed carbon management certification standard for airports.
It is an independent, voluntary programme developed by ACI Europe, designed to allow the assessment and recognition of participating airports' efforts to manage and reduce their carbon dioxide emissions.
As of November 2014, Airport Carbon Accreditation became a global programme and was available to all ACI member airports.
