Munich Airport will become Germany's first airport to achieve carbon-neutral operations. The governing bodies of the airport operating company adopted a resolution to approve this ambitious target at their meetings today. It states that the CO2 emissions directly attributable to the airport's operations will be reduced by 60 percent by 2030. The remaining 40 percent will take the form of carbon offsets. These are to be generated whenever possible through certified projects at the regional level. The costs of this climate protection program between now and 2030 will total 150 million euros.
