Zurich Airport: COVID-19 crisis ‘has done nothing to alter’ CO2 reduction ambitions

    Zurich Airport stated (21-Aug-2020) the COVID-19 crisis “has done nothing to alter” its plans to reduce CO2 emissions to net zero by 2050. To achieve this goal, the airport plans to renovate buildings, install modern energy supply systems and commit to carbon-neutral alternative fuels. Zurich Airport pursued a number of environmental initiatives in 1H2020, including a partnership with tech company Synhelion SA to research a process to mass-produce synthetic fuel from air and sunlight and the operation of sustainable taxi vehicles by the airport’s taxi concessionaire from Jan-2020.
