The Airports Council International (ACI) Asia-Pacific is aligning with the International Civil Aviation Organization States' commitment of adopting Long Term Aspirational Goal to reach net zero emission by 2050 in the aviation industry.

"As a voice of 127 airport members, operating 618 airports across 46 countries, ACI Asia-Pacific welcomes Governments’ support to adopt the 2050 Net-Zero Carbon goal for air transport,” said Stefano Baronci, director general of ACI Asia-Pacific.

“This is a landmark decision for our industry, and this commitment from the States is essential for achieving net zero emission.”

ACI Asia-Pacific aims to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050 by following the industry’s climate goals with the Paris Agreement.

“As we move forward, it is vital that we explore innovative solutions to address environmental challenges, and ACI Asia-Pacific and its airports members and World Business Partners commit to enhance their partnership with all aviation stakeholders in order to mitigate climate change in the Region,” added Baronci.

In May, ACI Asia-Pacific announced to its members to consider committing to hitting net zero carbon emissions and develop action plans such as using low carbon technologies in airport operations and infrastructure management. It is reported that airports in Asia Pacific and the Middle East have taken up the mission, with several of them ambitiously aiming to hit net zero targets before the 2050 mark.

“As we move forward, it is vital that we explore innovative solutions to address environmental challenges, and ACI Asia-Pacific and its airports members and World Business Partners commit to enhance their partnership with all aviation stakeholders in order to mitigate climate change in the Region,” added Baronci.
