East Midlands Airport recognises that our operations can impact upon the environment and the communities around us and as such we are committed to managing and addressing these.
The airport operates a well established Environmental Management System (EMS) which is independently audited on a six monthly basis. In 2002, East Midlands Airport’s EMS became the first of any UK Airport to achieve certification to the international standard ISO14001. Our system assists us in identifying the airport’s environmental impacts, implementing legislative requirements and controlling our impacts in line with our challenging environmental targets.
This section considers a wide range of impacts resulting from the operation of the airport and provides information about what programmes we have in place to reduce and manage our impacts.
