AIQ is recognized for CO2 reduction

QUERETARO, QRO – Querétaro Intercontinental Airport (AIQ) obtained level 2 certification from the Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) program for its significant actions to reduce carbon emissions and move towards a reduced carbon footprint.

Rafael Echevarne, general director of Airports Council International Latin America and the Caribbean (ACI-LAC) recognized the airport management team's commitment to seeking neutrality and efficiently managing carbon emissions.

"ACI-LAC is proud that Queretaro Intercontinental Airport is one of the 54 airports in the region accredited in the Airport Carbon Accreditation program," he said.

On the other hand, Carlos Aguilar, AIQ Airport Administrator, affirmed that this certification ratifies the commitment to continue working to reach the next levels in the years to come. He also acknowledged the work team for the project to achieve these results.

At ACA Level 2, airports must establish their carbon management and move towards a reduced carbon footprint, which is the only carbon management certification standard in the airport sector.

The goal is to achieve carbon neutrality at airports worldwide through six levels of certification: mapping, reduction, optimization, neutrality, transformation and transition; each level seeks to recognize the efforts of airports that are at different stages on the road to comprehensive carbon management.

With this recognition, AIQ ratifies the region's commitment to carbon management and the efficient use of infrastructure and resources, in line with the ACA program and the Decarbonization Trajectories, led by ACI and the government of the State of Querétaro.
