Royal Schiphol Group shares refined sustainability plan with Milieudefensie

Today, Royal Schiphol Group is publishing a refined, more detailed version of its sustainability plan. Schiphol Group wishes to be a pioneer in making aviation more sustainable. The objectives are for the airports to be emission-free and waste-free by 2030 and for the entire aviation sector to be CO2-neutral by 2050. 

In 2030, the shared goal of the aviation sector is to reduce emissions to 2005 levels, a joint agreement between the aviation sector and the Dutch government. Royal Schiphol Group is also committed to reducing these emission levels. For example, airports are investing in the development and production of sustainable aviation fuels and encouraging their use by means of a financial contribution to airlines. 

The sustainability plan expands on the actions required to achieve these goals. The plan also includes the historical and anticipated development of CO2emissions in the years ahead. Schiphol Group has shared the sustainability plan with the Dutch environmental organisation Milieudefensie. 

Royal Schiphol Group's sustainability plan 

Royal Schiphol Group's sustainability plan was launched for the first time in 2018. This plan contains the objectives and actions for Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, Eindhoven Airport, Rotterdam The Hague Airport and Lelystad Airport. New insights are incorporated in an annual update to the sustainability plan. In addition, Royal Schiphol Group will continue to report on the progress in the annual report and on the website.
