Swedavia’s Visby Airport achieved 100% fossil-free operations two years early

July 2, 2018 |

In Sweden, Swedavia’s Visby Airport has achieved entirely fossil-free operations two years ahead of the company’s deadline when it expects all of its 10 airports to achieve the target. In ten years, fossil carbon dioxide emissions at Visby Airport have decreased from about 300 tonnes a year to zero now. Intensive work to replace all vehicles that run on fossil fuel energy – everything from fire trucks to snow removal equipment – accounts for the reduction. Energy consumption has fallen steadily, and the airport’s energy is provided by green, or renewable, electricity. Swedavia also buys biofuel for its employees’ travel on official business, which means that this too is fossil-free.
