The Sustainability Strategy and Airport Sustainability Action Plan

To support the ongoing sustainable operation and development of the airport, London City Airport has developed, in partnership with the Local Authority, a Sustainability Strategy and Action Plan. 

LCY’s overarching sustainability vision is to be a responsible airport operator by minimizing our impact on the environment and surrounding communities, whilst supporting economic growth for London and the South East. We will strive for an honest and transparent approach to sustainability reporting developing actions to deliver genuine and long-term environmental improvements.

The Sustainability strategy includes waste production, energy and emissions, water resources, sustainable transport, biodiversity, noise, local air quality, community benefits, sustainable construction and environmental management.
