Vilnius Airport has received significant recognition from the Airports Carbon Accreditation’s (ACA) international environmental programme after reducing the average CO2 emissions per passenger by more than one third. This, together with the results of various other environmental projects, have enabled the airport to achieve the best rating among airports in the Baltic States.
This leadership in the Baltics is the result of carefully planned and consistently implemented steps to modernise a wide range of activities. The reduction of carbon emissions represents a strategic goal, and Vilnius' ambition is to continue its leadership and become the first airport in the Baltic States to achieve carbon neutrality. All 235 ACA member airports are committed to achieving zero emissions by 2050, and 91 airports aim to achieve this goal by 2030, including Vilnius Airport.
A significant change in efficiency and environmental protection efforts at Vilnius Airport took place in 2021, with the completion of the largest airfield renovation project in the country's aviation history. The project will continue with the development of a new passenger terminal by the end of 2024.
