The Blaise Diagne international airport in Diarse (AIBD) has been certified in its fight against CO2 emissions, a recognition of its efforts to become a "green platform", it was learned on Friday.
"This carbon accreditation confirms that the carbon management processes at the Dakar Blaise Diagne airport implemented by Limak-AIBD-summa (LAS), are in line with the global airport industry's response to the challenge of climate change", indicates a communiqué to the APS.
The same source notes that the photovoltaic plant project or the introduction of hybrid taxis, which run on gas and gasoline, at the airport are acts in this direction.
The Member States of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) have set up the carbon offset and reduction plan for international aviation (CORSIA), a global market mechanism that aims to bring the actors of the the airport world to reduce carbon emissions by half, recalls the communiqué.
According to the text, "this device which is intended to be voluntary in its beginnings could be binding in the future". LAS has a carbon footprint management plan in accordance with ICAO regulations and recommendations on the release of atmospheric pollutants, supplementing Act No. 2001 of 15 January 2001 on the environment code in Senegal, according to its officials.
