LIMASSOL, Cyprus (AP) — The outgoing head of an organization that represents airports in 45 European countries says the body’s new sustainability strategy aims to make airports carbon neutral by 2050.

Airport Council International Europe President Michael Kerkloh told a meeting of 300 aviation officials that Wednesday’s launch of the strategy aligns European airports with the Paris climate accords by putting climate change at the heart of business decisions.

That’s “an absolute must” for all industries, he said.

Kerkloh said 140 airports operated by 40 members of his organization have individually committed to the achieving net zero carbon emissions and that three Swedish airports have already done so.

The goal does not include aircraft emissions.
