The commitments of Chambéry Savoie Mont Blanc Airport

In 2015, the airport received its first ACA certificate (Airport Carbon Control).

In December 2016, our airport got the renewal of the 1st level of the ACA certificate. This first level of the Airport Carbon Accreditation programme, called ‘Mapmaking’, considers both measuring of the carbon footprint and data from an external audit. The accreditation reflects the commitment taken by VINCI Airports to get and maintain the ACA certificate for all its airports.

What is the ACA?

The Airport Carbon Accreditation is the only institutional programme that vouch for airports carbon control and management.

It validates initiatives taken by airports like carbon management and reduction through a four-level certificate system: Mapmaking, Reduction, Optimisation, and Neutrality.


The axes of the environmental approach of Chambéry Airport :

  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions
  • Reduce electricity consumption
  • Improve the recovery of waste

By focusing on all of its activities, services and development of its future projects, the airport is committed to :

  • Meet its compliance obligations
  • Protect the environment and prevent pollution
  • Continuously improve the EMS (Environmental Management System) to increase its environmental performance

The Environmental Management System (EMS) applies to all of SEACA's operations and development activities.

These activities include :
