Melbourne Airport recognises that a sustainable and environmentally responsible approach to business is vital to our success. This responsibility extends to our staff, airport tenants and other stakeholders.
Melbourne Airport's Environment Policy outlines our environmental principles and management objectives.
In accordance with the Airports Act 1996, Melbourne Airport is required to prepare and implement an Environment Strategy every five years. Our 2013 Environment Strategy forms part of the Melbourne Airport Master Plan, which was approved by the Commonwealth Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development on 18 December 2013.
We are committed to continuous improvement in environmental management. In June 2004, Melbourne Airport became the first Australian airport to achieve international certification of its Environmental Management System (EMS). Our EMS continues to be certified to the international standard ISO 14001:2004.
