Luton airport recognised for energy saving policies

Luton airport has become one of a handful of airports in the world to be accredited with the internationally recognised Energy Management Standard (ISO50001) by BSI.

The airport’s energy saving initiatives, such as the introduction of LED lighting and PIR motion sensors, have led to a reduction in carbon tonnage associated with electricity use by 342 tCO2 tonnes in the last CRC reporting year. 

This is despite record passenger growth and additional areas opening as part of a £100 million development project.

This is the third international standard the aiport has achieved in two years, receiving certification for its commitment to environmental management in 2013 (ISO 14001:2004) and certification for health and safety management standards (BS OHSAS I8001:2007) in 2014.

The airport’s senior manager for health. safety and environment, Simon Bown, said: “The achievement of these three certifications has taken years of dedicated work and the accreditation for energy management puts Luton airport amongst only a handful of airport operators in the world.

“We’ll continue to work hard to reduce our environmental impact as the airport continues to grow in terms of passengers and new routes.”
