The Jorge Chavez International Airport received the Mapping accreditation - Level 1 of the Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA), a certification that recognizes the efforts in the measurement of the carbon footprint associated with the airport activity.
This certification lets you know how Jorge Chavez airport is working on reducing its carbon footprint, compared to other airports. This first level that the Callao air terminal has received validates that the calculation of the carbon footprint has been correctly performed, responding mainly to energy consumption rates throughout the airport.
"By reducing the carbon footprint you reduce greenhouse gases (GHG) that pollute the entire planet. At LAP we are working to generate less GHG, in order to contribute to the environment and our neighboring population", said Julissa Salavarria, Management Systems Manager of Lima Airport Partners (LAP).
Likewise, as Salavarría explained, an action strategy has been defined to launch a series of good practices as internal campaigns such as: proper use of air conditioning only during working hours, turn off office lights when staff withdraw, turn off the monitors after the workday, do not leave the chargers connected, among other actions; which are adding to the reduction of the carbon footprint.
Finally, LAP has invested in electrical measurement devices to map the energy consumption in our main systems, this helps us to implement energy saving strategies. In addition, four air conditioners with greater technology and efficiency that use eco-sustainable refrigerants that will also help reduce GHGs were replaced at the end of 2019.
