Perth Airport targets carbon neutral by 2030

Perth Airports rapid expansion in renewable energy will jumpstart it’s commitment to be carbon neutral by 2030.

The carbon neutral commitment – which covers the airport’s Scope 1 and 2 emissions – is part of a new Environment, Social, People and Governance (ESPG) Strategy which sets ambitious targets for the Perth Airport team.

The team aims to embed sustainability considerations into the design and delivery of all infrastructure projects at Perth Airport by setting minimum requirements in key areas of sustainability.

The goal is to deliver major reductions in waste with a cut of 20 per cent in waste to landfill and an increase in recycling of 75 per cent and will ensure the scheme water use remains below 2019 levels by 2030.

Fast facts:

  • The carbon savings impact of Perth Airport going carbon neutral is equivalent to the annual electricity use emissions of around 5,300 homes.
  • It’s the equivalent of taking 6,300 cars off the road for a year or planting almost 480,000 tree seedlings and growing them for ten years.
  • The airport will look at a mix of energy efficiency measures, two to three large scale renewable energy projects on site and also investigate options for off-site projects.
  • The waste targets mean Perth Airport will cut close to 350 tonnes of waste going to landfill each year and boost recycling by more than 300 tonnes a year.
