The Green Airports Recognition was established by ACI Asia-Pacific with the support of ACI Asia-Pacific Regional Environment Committee. The Recognition’s objective is to promote environmental best practices to minimize aviation’s impact on the environment and to recognize ACI Asia-Pacific airport members who have outstanding accomplishments in their environmental projects. Understanding that different airports have different environmental priorities, each year, there will be a specific environmental aspect to be chosen as theme of recognition.  This year’s theme is Waste Minimization.


 The submissions were reviewed by the following judges:

  • Christopher Surgenor, Editor/Publisher, GreenAir Online
  • Juliana Scavuzzi, Aviation Environmental Specialist, ACI World

Mr. Christopher Paling, Senior Lecturer – Centre for Aviation, Transport, and the Environment, Manchester Metropolitan University said, “It is interesting to see what airports in this region are doing – and there is a lot of excellent projects as the submissions show.”


Recognized airports are invited to the award presentation ceremony to be held on April 24, 2018 at the ACI Asia-Pacific Regional Assembly to be held in Chiba City, Japan. For more information about the event, please visit the event website at
