Welcome aboard

Discover how airports are achieving zero waste, a critical first step towards circularity. Explore our database of initiatives and join us in sharing best practices for a sustainable aviation industry. Let’s collaborate to achieve a global circular economy. 

Zero Waste Airports

Airports, bustling hubs of global connectivity, generate vast amounts of waste. By reimagining waste as a resource, airports can forge new economic pathways, minimize waste, and lessen reliance on virgin materials. Achieving zero waste is no easy task. Supported by a baseline assessment, the focus is on addressing key streams: plastic, paper, food, and residual waste. The initiatives proposed in the database emphasize prevention and reuse to minimize environmental impact, with recycling considered as a last resort.
