A-Port developing carbon footprint calculation model for airports (Regional)
Latin American airport operator A-Port is developing a model to calculate the carbon footprint of airport facilities, company CEO Roberto Deutsch told BNamericas.


The firm is working with Switzerland's Zurich airport to develop the model in an effort to cut down on emissions in the aviation sector, which is responsible for an estimated 2-3% of the world's total CO2 emissions.


The model will help the operator contribute to reducing emissions while also improving airports' operational performance, Deutsch said.


A-Port is a joint venture established in 2008 by Brazil's Camargo Correa Group, Switzerland's Flughafen Zurich AG, and Chile's Gestion e Ingenieria SA-IDC.


The firm operates three airports in Chile: Puerto Montt, La Serena and Calama. The company also has technical service agreements with Colombian capital Bogota's international airport, and with Honduran airports Tegucigalpa, San Pedro Sula, La Ceiba and Roatan.


Deutsch was speaking on the sidelines of the BNamericas Southern Cone Infrastructure Summit, held in Chilean capital Santiago from October 6-8.
