Brisbane Airport (BNE) operator, Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC), has announced that it is bringing forward its emission reduction targets by 25 years to improve the planet.

The company stated that it would dramatically accelerate its emission reduction targets and commit to net-zero by 2025.

It noted that the accelerated 2025 net-zero target is connected to Scope 1 and 2 activities that include emissions from electricity and fuel consumed by the airport.

It has committed to move to 100% renewable energy and buy all-electric fleet vehicles to achieve net zero by 2025.

Additionally, BAC is planning to develop an onsite carbon removal project within its Biodiversity Zone.

In 2010, about 285ha of land was allocated by Brisbane Airport for Biodiversity Zone to preserve and maintain biodiversity on site. This will act as an improved carbon removal asset.

BAC has also committed to sending zero waste to landfill, and 50% of water consumed comes from recycled sources.

It has committed to working with over 100 other airports, airlines, fuel suppliers and industry stakeholders to accelerate the supply and use 10% of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) by 2030.

BAC CEO Gert-Jan de Graaff said: “We want passengers to know that when they’re travelling through Brisbane Airport, we are doing everything possible to ensure they are having the lightest touch on planet earth possible.

“As we plan for the future, our decisions are based on protecting the environment, growing responsibly, and supporting our communities.”

The company launched an electric bus fleet in 2018, which reduces carbon emissions by 250t annually.

In 2019, BAC also installed more than 18,000 solar panels with a 6MW generating capacity.

This March, BAC signed the World Economic Forum (WEF) Clean Skies for Tomorrow 2030 Ambition Statement.
