Background and Objectives

The ACI Asia-Pacific Green Airports Recognition aims 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.


By participating in this initiative, you have the opportunity to share your airport’s environmental projects with other airports in the region and also have the chance to be recognized for your airport's outstanding achievements.


Understanding that different airports have different environmental priorities, each year, a specific theme of Recognition will be chosen among various environmental aspects.


Environmental Aspects:

  • Environmental Policy and Management (including green procurement)
  • Noise
  • Air quality
  • Waste
  • Water (including both municipal water usage and wastewater discharge)
  • Energy
  • Carbon
  • Biodiversity
  • Ground transportation
  • Land & water contamination
  • Others


Recognized airports will be invited to attend the recognition presentation ceremony at the annual ACI Asia-Pacific Regional Assembly.



Environmental projects entering the ACI Asia-Pacific Green Airports Recognition will be assessed based on the following 8 criteria.  

  • Environmental Best Practice Awareness
  • Company Management involvement
  • Cost Effectiveness
  • Environmental Benefit
  • Innovation
  • Stakeholder Engagement
  • Training
  • Applicability



Platinum, Gold and Silver Recognitions will be given to the top 3 scorers based on the above criteria and airport size categories.
