Fraport AG is establishing new climate protection targets aimed at further reducing CO2 emissions not only for Frankfurt Airport but also across the entire Group. The goal is to lower CO2 emissions at Fraport’s fully-consolidated Group companies by nearly half to about 125,000 metric tons of CO2 by 2030. The corresponding emissions in 2017 amounted to 209,668 metric tons of CO2. Fraport’s new target is based on the national reduction rates agreed to at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris in 2015.
Fraport AG’s executive board chairman, Dr. Stefan Schulte, said: “Growth and responsibility are not mutually exclusive, but belong together. In the spirit of corporate responsibility, we have firmly embedded climate protection in our Group companies to make a positive contribution to this worldwide effort. To achieve our CO2 goals, we will continue to improve the energy efficiency ratings of our buildings, facilities and processes.”
In the report, Group CO2 emissions were included with the non-financial performance indicators – along with figures on the sickness rate and the ratio for women in management positions (in Germany). Other indicators include global passenger satisfaction and baggage connectivity at Frankfurt Airport, as well as Group-wide employee satisfaction. Advancements in these key topics and further initiatives with regard to sustainability are presented in the latest Fraport Group report for the 2017 fiscal year. Titled “2017 Compact – Gute Reise! We make it happen”, the report also provides information about Fraport’s financial performance during the past year.

Fraport is complying with the sustainability reporting standards of the Global Reporting Initiative with a separate and detailed GRI report, which can also be found as a PDF at www.fraport.com/responsibility.
