From late 2014, a fleet of more than 100 fully electric taxis will be deployed for passenger taxi services at Schiphol. The airport will also be using electric buses to ferry passengers to and from aircraft. In order to conserve energy, the terminal and car parks have been fitted with LED lighting. Schiphol is conducting tests with LED lighting on the apron where the aircraft are parked. These tests include the smart operation of this LED lighting, with the lights only switching on when needed. Schiphol uses 100% recycled asphalt on the airport's roads.
Airport Carbon Accreditation
Schiphol's Airport Carbon Accreditation is the highest possible (3+). To qualify for this level of accreditation, an airport must have analysed all its emissions, drawn up effective reduction programmes and implemented them successfully, and compensated for any remaining emissions.
