Heathrow 2.0 - Sustainability Strategy

Attached as a pdf is Heathrow's 2.0 Connecting People and Planet doc.

With growing pressure on the aviation industry to become more sustainable it is always interesting to see how airports are responding. With Heathrow's latest sustainability strategy, released in February 2022, it gives an insight to how the industry is aiming to react.


Looking into their Net-Zero Aviation section it is interesting to see the following.


The two main goals Heathrow have set.

  • OBJECTIVE: Net Zero in the Air - GOAL: Up to 15% cut in carbon by 2030 compared to 2019

  • OBJECTIVE: Net Zero on the ground - GOAL: At least 45% cut in carbon by 2030 compared to 2019

Targets set to reach their goals.


Net Zero in the Air

  • Cut up to 1% of ‘in the air’ carbon emissions by 2030 through more efficient operations and modernising airspace

  • Cut up to 8% of ‘in the air’ carbon emissions by 2030 through improvements to conventional aircraft

  • Cut up to 7% of ‘in the air’ carbon emissions by 2030 through use of Sustainable Aviation Fuel


Net Zero on the Ground Targets

  • 87% cut in carbon emissions from airport vehicles by 2030

  • Cut supply chain carbon emissions by 36% by 2030

  • Heathrow buildings and infrastructure to be zero carbon by the mid-2030s
