Lyon-Bron Airport receives Airport Carbon Accreditation Level 2 certification

Visuel Lyon-Bron

Lyon-Bron Airport has been awarded Level 2
of the ACA program

As part of VINCI Airports' strategy to achieve net-zero emissions with sequestration of its residual emissions for its European airports by 2030, Lyon-Bron Airport has committed to reducing its direct CO2 emissions* by 50% by 2025 (compared to 2018).

This level of certification requires:
  • The development of a carbon management plan, with emissions reduction objectives
  • A reduction in carbon emissions from Scopes 1 and 2, i.e. emissions under the direct control of the airport, compared to a three-year rolling average.

To achieve this objective, Lyon-Bron Airport first mapped the platform's carbon emissions in order to identify avenues for reduction and then embarked on an action plan to significantly reduce its CO2 emissions.


This action plan is based in particular on the electrification of the vehicle fleet, as well as on the increasing use of renewable energies (green electricity and biogas) to cover 100% of needs by 2025.

In addition, with a view to encouraging the entire airport ecosystem to make the ecological transition, the airport will also carry out actions outside its perimeter, for example by installing charging stations for electric vehicles or by facilitating (power supply, hangar, etc.) the reception of electric aircraft.

All of these actions aim to reduce direct emissions by 50% in 2025 compared to the 2018 baseline and to achieve zero net direct emissions in 2030 for scopes 1 and 2.
