Issued by Heathrow

Summary

Heathrow’s latest Sustainability Performance Report demonstrates continued progress on a range of sustainability issues.

Report Highlights

Heathrow’s latest Sustainability Performance Report demonstrates continued progress on a range of sustainability issues. Key highlights in 2016 include:

  • 455 new apprenticeships pledged through the Heathrow Academy
  • Heathrow Skills Task Force launched to help support the skills and training needed to deliver Heathrow expansion
  • Most flights by quieter and cleaner next-generation aircraft (A350, A380 and 787) of any airport in Europe
  • First airport in the world to simultaneously hold four certifications to the Carbon Trust Standard
  • Reduced CO2 emissions from energy used in buildings by 37% compared to 1990, exceeding our target of 34% less by 2020 and equating to a reduction of 134,675 tonnes

Heathrow’s vision is to give passengers the best airport service in the world which the company feels is only possible if it grows and operates the airport sustainably, now and in the future.

In February 2017 Heathrow launched Heathrow 2.0, its new plan for sustainable growth. Heathrow 2.0 represents a step-change in the company’s approach and demonstrates leadership, both within the airport sector and beyond. It sets stretching, long-term goals that will guide the future of the business.

The achievements highlighted within Heathrow’s 2016 Sustainability Performance Report provide a strong foundation for a step-change in the company’s level of ambition in 2017 and beyond.

“I’m so proud of the work we’ve done in 2016 to continue to push our performance across such a wide range of key sustainability issues. For me the business case for a sustainable Heathrow is strong. It’s about helping people fulfil their potential and being a good neighbour and citizen. It’s about delivering opportunities for business that make the UK stronger and more sustainable. And it’s about ensuring that future generations can explore and enjoy our beautiful world.”

John Holland-Kaye, Chief Executive Officer, Heathrow Airport Limited
