The activities of Brussels Airport Company as airport operator only have a limited impact on air emissions. In reality, it almost exclusively boils down to the emissions of our combustion plants.

Even though the emissions caused by aircraft engines are not our responsibility, Brussels Airport participates in projects that contribute to driving down the carbon dioxide emissions of aircraft in the short or the longer term.

We do so by having aircraft perform their approach with a constant descent angle, rather than in a stair-step descent. Or by adapting the procedures which help to reduce taxiing times.
