Conserving the environment for future generations

Aerodrom Ljubljana, d.o.o., takes a holistic approach to sustainable development through numerous measures. At the end of May the national certification body SIQ awarded us ISO 14001:2004 certification for our environmental management system. This is a recognition awarded to companies throughout the world on the basis of their fulfilment of international standards, the main aim of which is to protect and conserve the environment for future generations. These standards cover the fulfilment of legal requirements, efficient use of resources and the prevention of environmental pollution. Obtaining this certification is proof that Aerodrom Ljubljana has an adequately maintained and documented environmental management system, is aware of its responsibilities towards the environment, local communities, employees and other sections of the public, manages its environmental impacts and works constantly to reduce them, and meets all the requirements of environmental legislation.

Simultaneously with the ISO 14001:2004 certification process we underwent assessment for ISO 9001:2008 certification. This certification, which we first obtained in 2013 and which confirms the high level of our services, our focus on continual improvement and the effectiveness of our operations, has now been successfully renewed.

In 2013, with the aim of managing our environmental impact as effectively as possible, we calculated our carbon footprint for the first time and successfully completed the certification process for Airport Carbon Accreditation, part of the wider initiative to reduce carbon emissions in aviation promoted by airport operators' association ACI Europe. In terms of individual sources of emissions, we found that the biggest impacts on our carbon footprint are from electricity consumption (61.6%), heating (19.4%), transport to work (9.4%) and the company vehicle fleet (9.3%). At the other end of the scale are work-related travel (0.3%) and generators (0.1%). In 2015 the company aims to progress to the next level, which means a perceptible reduction in carbon dioxide emissions generated. Aerodrom Ljubljana's environmental policy aims to achieve carbon neutrality by 2020 and defines the transition to a low carbon society as one of its strategic environmental goals.

Aerodrom Ljubljana has stepped up its efforts to steadily reduce the harmful impacts of its operations and activities on the environment by implementing office greening measures. These have brought Aerodrom Ljubljana a European Green Office Certificate for the third year in a row. We also contribute to conservation of the environment by encouraging our employees to take part in annual clean-up campaigns.
