Greenest Airport

We adopt an airport-wide approach and collaborate with our business partners to reduce HKIA’s environmental impacts.

As a significant proportion of HKIA’s environmental footprint is beyond AAHK’s direct control, working closely with business partners and other stakeholders is our best opportunity to drive improvement. We encourage our business partners to participate in our environmental programmes by demonstrating the footprint reduction benefits that could be accomplished through collaboration and making these programmes easy, useful, and, wherever possible, free.
