2025 Pioneers for Trust - Environment

Lead the environmental transition of our airports


For many years, we have operated a policy of controlling our environmental impact on our internal emissions and are fully aware of our key role in reducing our external emissions. Alongside airlines, service providers, cargo and logistics companies, but also in partnership with local authorities, we are committed to reinventing the airport model of the future: more eco-responsible and inseparable from low-carbon aviation. 


Our 4 commitments






Our environmental ambition embraces our stakeholders and goes beyond our direct scope of responsibility.

Zero impact airport operations



Between 2009 and 2019, we have already reduced CO2 emissions per passenger by 71%. On the international front, 6 of our airports (Izmir, Ankara, Antalya, Delhi, Hyderabad and Amman) have already achieved carbon neutrality according to the standards of the Airports Council International (ACI) certification programme.

Actions to achieve zero impact



 Reduce the role of the car

by using low-carbon means of transport on our Parisian platforms.

Reduce our waste and make better use of it 

by eliminating disposable, plastic and non-recyclable waste, but also by improving the transport of goods.

Preserve biodiversity

by protecting natural environments, combating trafficking in protected species and reducing our impact on biodiversity throughout our value chain.



Key dates to keep in mind


  • 2025 Carbon neutrality at Paris-Orly

  • 2030 Carbon neutrality at Paris-CDG, Paris-Le Bourget, and for 14 TAV airports, as well as Amman, Liege, Zagreb, Santiago, Antanarivo and Nosy be

  • 2030 Net zero emissions at Paris-Orly, Paris-Le Bourget and New Delhi

  • 2035 Net zero emissions at Paris-CDG

  • 2050 Net zero emissions at Ankara, Izmir, Amman, Liège, Zagreb, Santiago

  • 2050 Carbon neutral territory at Paris-CDG, Paris-Orly, Paris-Le Bourget

Environmental transition of air transport

We are already working towards sustainable alternative fuels and hydrogen powered aircraft to enable the advent of low-carbon aviation by 2050.
Find out more about the Olga project

Actions to contribute to the environmental transition 



Reduce our CO2 emissions by optimising the existing

by improving operations such as ground handling, continuous descent and the development of electric propulsion.

Increase the use of less polluting fuels

by using sustainable aviation fuels, known as SAF (Sustainable Aviation Fuels).

Embrace Hydrogen (H2) energy 

by deploying, with Airbus and Air Liquide, hydrogen infrastructures to refuel future liquid hydrogen aircraft by 2050.



5 levers for the decarbonisation of air transport


  • SAF sustainable aviation fuels that replace paraffin and reduce emissions by about 80-90%.

  • Technological disruption i.e. being prepared for the hydrogen aircraft and the electric aircraft. 

  • Fleet renewal by airlines that commit to replacing their aircraft with less CO2 consuming aircraft.

  • Optimisation of operations work done with authorities on improving trajectories, such as continuous descent, reducing taxiing time on runways, etc.

  • Offsetting of greenhouse gas emissions because to date the decarbonisation of air transport also requires the offsetting of residual emissions.

Integration of the airport into the local ecosystem


We are encouraging short circuits, we are promoting circular economy and we are developing on-site production of resources.
Find out about our local policy (French)


Actions to include us in local policy



Exploit the local environment more respectfully

by using resources such as geothermal energy, solar energy, etc.

Preserve air quality

 by reducing the carbon footprint and reducing noise. 

Develop the circular economy 

by sharing resources with the territories.



Our objectives in figures



25%
of land preserved for biodiversity at Paris-CDG
30%
of land preserved for biodiversity at Paris-Orly and Paris-Le Bourget
2030
improve the biodiversity index of the Group's airports



Environmental footprint of projects


We implement low-carbon design, construction and renovation for infrastructure and buildings.
Find out about our real estate offer


Actions to involve all stakeholders in building the airport of tomorrow



Build with a low-carbon and circular economy approach 

by reusing materials and adapting projects according to needs.

Take into account the impact on biodiversity 

by limiting the amount of artificial land.

Limit the environmental impact 

by implementing a low-carbon budget and a clean worksite charter.



Our key figure



5M€
life cycle carbon budget for all investment projects above 5M€. Projects for the following group airports: Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Paris-Orly, Amman, Ankara, Izmir, Bodrum, Gazipaşa, Monastir, Enfidha, Skopje, Ohrid, Tbilisi, Batumi, Almaty
