ACI Europe’s Airport Carbon Accreditation programme has been selected as one of the three finalists of the EU-wide low-carbon contest World You Like Challenge — previously reported on the Aviation Blog. Over 285,000 members of the public voted to select 10 semi-finalists from an original list of 269 projects, and Airport Carbon Accreditation has been shortlisted for the final round. 

Airport Carbon Accreditation was the only aviation project entered in the contest. With 75 European airports now certified in Europe, and more in Asia and Africa, it is making a meaningful difference.The World You Like Challenge was launched last year by EU Commissioner Connie Hedegaard, and the final winner will be announced on 7 November at the Sustainia awards in Copenhagen. It will be an illustrious gathering as this year’s Sustainia ceremony will include speeches by Commissioner Hedegaard, former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, former Norwegian Prime Minister Gro Harlem Brundtland, and Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Chairman Rajendra Pachauri. 

Stay tuned to the Aviation Blog for the latest on the contest!
