Forging a sustainable Changi
Changi Airport Group (CAG) has launched its newest Sustainability Report, ‘Forging A Sustainable Changi’, which outlines CAG’s sustainability imaginative and prescient, method and outcomes from the monetary yr ending 31 March 2022. The report covers CAG’s actions throughout Changi Airport’s 4 passenger terminal buildings, the Changi Airfreight Centre and the plane working areas in its drive to construct a sustainable Changi Airport with airport companions and the group.
Highlights of the FY2021/2022 Sustainability Report embrace:
Zero carbon development till 2030, capping absolute carbon emissions at 2018 ranges
CAG is dedicated to slicing carbon emissions whereas enhancing useful resource effectivity. CAG will cap absolute carbon emissions at 2018 ranges till 2030, even with the rising variety of passengers that Changi Airport is predicted to serve within the years forward. CAG strives in the direction of a Net Zero aspiration by 2050 via the usage of new applied sciences and the elevated adoption of renewable power.
CAG’s inaugural local weather resilience research mapped local weather impacts as much as 2050
CAG launched into a detailed evaluation of the impacts of evolving local weather elements, corresponding to rising ambient temperatures and higher rainfall depth. Climate dangers are mapped as much as 2050 for airport-wide adaptation and options are being developed to handle them. For occasion, in response to elevated rainfall, CAG has expanded Changi’s drainage community and put in sensors linked to a real-time knowledge dashboard for higher flood threat administration.
5.9% lower in total water consumption
Apart from enhancing chiller condensate and wastewater recycling capabilities, CAG continues to avoid wasting water. Changi has lowered the usage of potable and non-potable water, starting from bogs and constructing cooling methods to irrigation and cleansing.
11% of waste diverted from incineration
CAG optimises waste administration by decreasing waste at supply, encouraging good recycling practices and implementing efficient waste assortment methods. Close collaboration and communication with licensed contractors, airport companions and cleaners have enabled CAG to determine alternatives to make use of assets extra effectively. Projects launched into over the previous yr included the upcycling of constructing supplies and composting of horticultural waste.
