New airport carbon accreditation milestone for Quito

Quito’s Mariscal Sucre International Airport has become the first airport in Latin America and the Caribbean to receive Level 4+ ‘Transition’ certification in ACI’s Airport Carbon Accreditation programme.

Driven on by operator Corporación Quiport’s commitment to being a good neighbour, the Ecuadorian gateway has been part of the programe since 2015.

All airports achieving Level 4 Transformation status have shown that they can not only achieved carbon neutrality but have also implemented innovative and strategic measures to further reduce their carbon footprint and promote long-term sustainable practices.

The airport believes that achieving the next level in the Airport Carbon Accreditation programme “reflect the commitment of Quiport and the Quito airport to environmental sustainability and their leadership in the implementation of measures to reduce carbon emissions and promote more eco-efficient air transport.”

It adds: “This distinction positions Mariscal Sucre Airport as an international benchmark in the fight against climate change and sets a high standard for other airports in Latin America and the Caribbean.

“Corporación Quiport and the entire airport community are proud of this achievement and reaffirm their commitment to continue working towards a more sustainable and resilient future for future generations.”
