FIAA Greenhouse Gas Reduction Commitment Policy - Fredericton International Airport

FIAA Greenhouse Gas Reduction Commitment Policy

The Fredericton International Airport Authority (FIAA) is committed in helping the local and global environment by reducing greenhouse gases (GHG) being released into the atmosphere. Reducing GHGs (i.e. carbon emissions) will be managed through the Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) program, which promotes environmental efficiency and carbon reduction within airports across the world. Starting in 2018, the FIAA commenced on the journey to ultimately neutralizing Fredericton Airport’s carbon footprint through four different levels:

Level 1 – Mapping

  • Determining baseline emissions from sources within the operational boundary of FIAA

Level 2 – Reduction

  • Creating and implementing a Carbon Management Plan
  • Showing a reduction in the airport’s carbon footprint over multiple years

Level 3 – Optimisation

  • Widening the scope to include third party emissions
  • Engage third parties to take part in the Carbon Management Plan

Level 4 – Neutrality

  • Implementing strategies to offset the carbon emissions from the airport that could not be reduced in Levels 2 and 3

FIAA will track annual carbon emission sources, implement carbon reduction initiatives, and report annually to ACA starting in 2019 with a goal to reach Level 2 in the next couple years.

The FIAA CEO fully supports this policy and its goals. The policy will be reviewed regularly to ensure its validity and effectiveness.

Traveller Alert: As part of the terminal expansion project, the airport will be upgrading backup power systems on the evening of January 23 after the last aircraft of the day departs YFC. There will be no impact on flights, however, there will be reduced lighting in the terminal during this time. More information on the expansion project is available here.
Alerte voyageur : Dans le cadre des travaux d’agrandissement du terminal, une modernisation des systèmes d’alimentation électrique de secours est prévue pour le soir du 23 janvier après le dernier vol de la journée. Aucun vol ne sera touché par ces travaux; l’éclairage sera simplement réduit. Pour en savoir plus sur le projet d'agrandissement..
