Delhi’s IGI Airport to become ‘Net Zero Carbon Emission Airport’ by 2030

Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA), operated by Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) – is set to become Net Zero Carbon

1st airport in Asia Pacific Region to achieve Level 4+ Accreditation under ACI’s Airport Carbon Accreditation. Emission Airport by 2030, much ahead of the IPCC’s 2050 target adopted by all major industries all over the world.

Videh Kumar Jaipuriar, CEO-DIAL announced this in a video message displayed by Airport Council International (ACI) in an event during COP26, titled, “Delivering the Net Zero Airport of the Future”.

DIAL has implemented various programmes at the airport such as use of renewable energy, development of green airport infrastructures and multiple passenger connectivity networks, energy conservation & efficiency improvements and stakeholder partnership programs etc.

In addition to this, DIAL has also taken several technologically advanced measures such as adoption of electric vehicles and Taxibots. Taxibot (a semi-robotic vehicle, and is used as a means of taxiing the plane to the runway) at IGIA was introduced in 2019 for commercial operation and is the first airport in the world to take up this initiative. It has resulted in reduction of significant amount of aviation turbine fuel consumption by aircraft for ground movement.

Carbon neutral refers to a policy of not increasing carbon emissions and of achieving carbon reduction through offsets.
IGIA became Asia Pacific’s first Level 4+ (Transition) accredited airport under ACI’s Airport Carbon Accreditation program last year. It was announced by ACI during the ACI EUROPE Annual Assembly & Congress. Airport Carbon Accreditation is the global standard for carbon management in the airport industry. It aims to encourage and enable airports and its stakeholders to implement best practices in Greenhouse Gas (GHG) management and achieve emission reductions.
