In this context, we are happy to receive the ACA certification. We have taken an important step towards our goal of being carbon neutral in 2030. "As we did last year by covering our parking lot with solar panels, we are working to obtain our energy from renewable sources and use it efficiently."
Olivier Jankovec, General Director of ACI Europe, “The successful participation of Milas-Bodrum Airport in the Airport Carbon Accreditation program is a strong example of the airport sector's commitment to taking emissions into the agenda even in the most challenging times. Continuing efforts to eliminate carbon emissions amid an ongoing devastating crisis is no small feat. I congratulate all TAV Airports employees who contributed to this success. Congratulations!" said.
