Airport Looks to Go Greener; ENERGY POLICY UNVEILED


Byline: ADAM JUPP

PLANS to reduce the carbon footprint of Newcastle Airport have been unveiled.

The airport has published its energy policy, which sets out a series of measures that will be taken to make the site more environmentally friendly. It comes as the business was awarded the Carbon Trust Standard in recognition of the work done to reduce energy use, making it one of the only airports in the UK to achieve the accolade.

The policy states that by 2015 Newcastle International will strive to reduce its carbon footprint by up to 15% of what it is today.

To do that, it is introducing a range of measures, including switching lightbulbs to LEDs and testing different sections of the site to discover how much energy is being used by various devices like telephone, computers and lamps.

Finance director Simon Fisher said: "Our energy policy plays an important part in Newcastle Airport's future business strategy. Our commitment to delivering the goals we have set out in our policy is underlined by the financial and management investments being made to deliver energy and carbon reduction.

"As one of the UK's leading airports, Newcastle International takes its environmental and climate change obligations seriously and we are committed to operating the airport in a sustainable manner.
