The objective is clear: Munich Airport has set the target of a 60 percent reduction in the airport's CO2 emissions by 2030, with the remaining 40 percent to be offset by appropriate climate protection measures. This applies to all emissions subject to the airport’s influence, for example those caused by vehicles or the airport's own CHP (combined heat and power) generating station.
"With the wide range of measures and technological innovations that we have implemented, we will be able to gradually reduce our carbon emissions," said Dr. Michael Kerkloh, the President and CEO of Munich Airport.
For example: In recent years the company has made massive investments in electric mobility: A total of 121 gasoline or diesel powered vehicles will be replaced by electric models by the end of 2019. That represents more than 20 percent of the current vehicle pool. By 2030 the airport plans for the entire fleet to be carbon-neutral.
Here is a list of some of our electric vehicles with their key characteristics:
