Belfast International Airport Achieves Gold Level In 2020 Northern Ireland Environmental Benchmarking Survey

Belfast International Airport has achieved gold level in the the 2020 Northern Ireland Environmental Benchmarking Survey.

Sponsored by Moy Park and supported by the Department for Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs, the Northern Ireland Environmental Benchmarking Survey is organised by responsible business network Business in the Community, and is a comparison tool that recognises and rewards organisations that are going above and beyond their legal environmental requirements, and identifies areas in which they can improve their environmental impacts.

103 organisations from a range of sectors including general manufacturing, local authority, education, utilities, construction, information and communications technology (ICT), and food and drink took part in the survey in this year, prioritising sustainability despite the challenges of the year.

"Really Proud"

In a statement published on Belfast International Airport's website, the airport's managing director, Graham Keddie, said, "We have been participating in this scheme for over 20 years and are really proud to have been elevated to the gold award. We have made significant strides in mitigating the environmental impacts of our business and are committed to a greener future."

"Congratulate And Thank"

Meanwhile, chair of Business in the Community NI and group chief executive of Translink Chris Conway commented, "Stakeholders, suppliers and the general public increasingly consider sustainability to be of utmost importance, and the survey is a way for organisations to publicly demonstrate their commitment to a greener future. I want to congratulate and thank all companies that have stepped forward to take part in the survey and report on their environmental practices."
