Airport operator Aena’s efforts to tackle climate change have been recognised via a place on the CDP’s (Carbon Disclosure Project) ‘A List’.

AENA says it is one of only seven Spanish companies to have achieved the highest CDP rating.

In a statement, Spain’s airport operator says the result underlines the value ascribed to its strategy, which focuses on cutting emissions, mitigating risks in the use of energy and natural resources, and building a low-carbon economy.


The operator states it is striving to ensure its operations are as energy efficient as possible through promoting renewable sources, minimising CO2 emissions and introducing innovative solutions to extend its environmental reach over and above its legal obligations.

Its annual survey ranks companies on a scale of A to D on the quality of their disclosure efforts. In 2019, the CDP recognised 170 companies with the top ‘A’ rating out of more than 8,000 scored.

“AENA’s participation in the CDP report and other initiatives such as the Airport Carbon Accreditation programme, which acknowledges the efforts of airports to manage and reduce their CO2 emissions, confirms the company’s steadfast commitment in its fight against climate change and also its transparency in its relationship with its surroundings in order to share quality information with all its stakeholders,” it said.
