Airport Carbon Accreditation

We provide independent verification services for the Airport Carbon Accreditation programme, which provides airport operators with a framework for carbon management and reduction. 


The Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) scheme helps airport operators measure, manage and reduce their carbon footprint. For those with an established carbon management programme, it also offers an option to achieve carbon neutral status. 

What is Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA)? 

Airport Carbon Accreditation is the global standard for carbon management in the airport industry.  ACA supports the airport community in reducing its carbon footprint, demonstrating its achievements and sharing knowledge and best practices. 

How we can help 

To meet ACA requirements, operators are required to have their carbon footprints (and potentially their carbon management and stakeholder plans) independently verified in accordance with the ISO14064 Standard. 

The Carbon Trust is a leading provider of independent verification and certification services. We have worked with many leading airport operators including Heathrow, Gatwick and the Manchester Airport Group. 

For those seeking to demonstrate leadership, we can combine an ACA verification with an assessment against the Carbon Trust Standard in an efficient and streamlined process.
