Hamad International Airport's monitoring of carbon emissions has made it the GCC's first and only MENA's second airport to achieve level 3 in the Airport Council International's Airport Carbon Accreditiation, but it isn't stopping there.

"HIA's target is to improve carbon efficiency per passenger by 30 percent against a 2015 baseline," says Badr Mohammed al Meer, chief operating officer, HIA, said after receiving the certification earlier this week.

HIA has developed a carbon management strategy and is working to modify its lighting, heaating, ventilation and cooling systems, including isntalling air curtains at its entrances to minimise cooling losses.

The airport carbon accreditation programme is the world's only institutionally endorsed carbon management programme for airports.
