An environmental directive has been rolled out to cover Bahrain International Airport (BIA) to support the government’s goal of achieving net zero emissions by 2060.
The details were announced yesterday by the Environment Committee of the Bahrain Airport Company (BAC) which convened its 15th meeting where the Environmental Management Directive was launched.
The meeting included a presentation on the pillars of sustainability, environment and governance.
“As the only airport in the kingdom, BIA is aware of its responsibility to maximize its socio-economic contributions while minimizing its environmental impact,” said Abdulla Janahi, BAC’s Director of Development and Technical Manager.
“With the launch of the new Environmental Management Directive, we have set clearer parameters that will help us achieve these goals.
“The committee is working to support the government’s goal of achieving net zero emissions by 2060, which will help create a cleaner, more sustainable future for Bahrain.”
Huge recent investments in the aviation sector and technological advancements are already helping the cause.
The award-winning new airport terminal, for example, meets LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards, which aim to save energy, water and resources, as well as generate less waste.
It is the most widely used green building rating system in the world and a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement.
