Kansai Airports Group in Japan has prepared a long-term goal to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions and a decarbonised society by 2050 to prevent global warming.

The group operates three airports, namely Kansai International Airport (KIX), Osaka International Airport (ITAMI) and Kobe Airport (UKB).

Along with the other stakeholders, the international community has been working together to build a decarbonised society with net-zero greenhouse gas emissions.

According to the long-term target, the group aims to cut CO2 emissions by 40% by 2030, taking emissions of 113,000t in 2016 as a baseline.

Kansai Airports Group stated the implementation of several measures to reduce the environmental footprint of its three airports.

In a statement, the group said: “We will continue to work on a medium to a long-term plan and promote the measures for achieving carbon neutral status by further reducing energy consumption and using renewable energy.
