Halifax, N.S. – Halifax Stanfield’s environmental sustainability efforts were formally recognized this week at the Airports Council International – North America (ACI-NA) conference in Fort Worth, Texas.
Joyce Carter, President & CEO of Halifax International Airport Authority, received a Certificate of Accreditation at the ACI’s Airport Carbon Accreditation ceremony.
“It was with great pride that I represented my colleagues and accepted this certificate on everyone’s behalf,” says Carter. “Congratulations to the entire team at Halifax Stanfield and in particular our Safety, Security and Environment group for this terrific accomplishment.”
The Certificate recognizes the Airport Authority’s work to manage CO2 emissions as part of the airport industry’s response to the challenge of climate change. Halifax Stanfield’s carbon management processes have earned the first accreditation level of mapping. HIAA is now focussed on achieving the second accreditation level of reduction, which aims to reduce its carbon footprint.
In May 2017, HIAA joined ACI’s Airport Carbon Accreditation Program, a global consortium of airports dedicated to managing, reducing and ultimately neutralizing their carbon footprint. Halifax Stanfield is one of nine airports in Canada participating in the program and one of 27 airports in North America that attained accreditation since ACI-NA joined the Airport Carbon Accreditation program in 2014.
