London Luton joins select few with energy standard accreditation
London Luton Airport (LLA) has joined 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 £100m development project.
Simon Bown, senior manager - health, safety & environment at LLA commented: “The achievement of certification has taken years of dedicated work and the accreditation for energy management puts LLA 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.”
