Third runway: Heathrow unveils plan for ‘carbon neutral’ growth

Airport reveals plans to incentivise electric flight and sustainable fuels on its runways, while investing in peatland restoration and lobbying for stronger global climate action

 

Heathrow Airport has unveiled its plan to achieve “carbon neutral growth” once its controversial third runway is built, unveiling a range of measures to incentivise electric flights, offset CO2 through peatland restoration, and push the wider global aviation sector to deliver on a 2050 decarbonisation target.

 

Published today, the plan outlines the role Heathrow will play in four key areas designed to reduce and offset carbon emissions from the expected growth in flights created by an additional runway, the construction of which was given the go-ahead by MPs over the summer.
