At Fraport Ground Services, we actively practice environmental protection within the scope of Fraport AG’s integrated environmental management system. We do considerably more than the legally prescribed minimum, treating environmental protection as a process of continual improvement. For us, it is a matter of top priority to attain our environmental goals.
We rely on leading-edge technologies to sustainably reduce noise and CO2 emissions and manage other environmental effects.
In order to cut down on CO2 emission on the apron – we are, after all, the largest consumer of fuels at the airport – for years we have been increasing our use of electrically powered equipment. The large number of short-distance trips involved in our activities make it sensible to rely on electric vehicles, which are quieter and emit no direct pollutants.
The CO2 emissions caused by aircraft parked on the ground are also being steadily reduced by gradually switching from diesel generators to stationary ground power units for providing the required electrical power.
The core element of Fraport’s sustainability strategy is environmental management. At Fraport Ground Services, we are contributing to this with our forward-looking activities to minimize environmental burdens.
