Lux Airport's motivations to participate in IMS Luxembourg’s activities:

IMS Luxembourg supports its members through collaborative and federating projects in the theme of sustainable development while promoting social and solidarity responsibility all while keeping local stakeholders in mind. These aspects perfectly complement lux-Airport's commitment to minimize the impact of airport activities on the surrounding ecosystems. Additionally we aim to develop infrastructure in harmony with local communities, keeping in mind the protection of the environment, which we believes meshes with IMS's mentality. Joining a community committed to sharing knowledge and good practices will allow us to further improve our actions and strengthen our commitments.


Lux Airport's Sustainable Development Policy: 

lux-Airport is acting to increase its environmental performance by seeking continuous reduction of the environmental impacts of its activities and operations, with a focus on the following seven pillars:
1. Reducing our carbon footprint, with the aim to achieve absolute neutrality in 2030
2. Preserve groundwater and improve water management
3. Avoid, reuse, recycle and recovery waste
4. Soil conservation and renaturation program
5. Biodiversity preservation, promotion and improvement
6. Fight against noise and vibration
7. Air quality monitoring
Sustainable development involves the management of its energy, and the development of its infrastructure in accordance with the latest sustainability criteria as well as the promotion of electricity production via renewable energies.


Lux Airport's Sustainable Development actions and frameworks: 

With the most recent projects at lux-Airport we have drastically reduced the heating and cold consumption of terminals by 50% in 2023 compare to 2018 thanks to its energy optimization program. lux-Airport has invested in the Norsk e-Fuel project for the production of SAF (sustainable aviation fuel). Regarding the optimization of wastewater treatment, lux-Airport recovers water from the aircraft during the de-icing process, directly in aircraft parking stands. The promotion of biodiversity has been highlighted through the creation of high-potential protected areas, monitored by an innovative biomonitoring process using pollen collected by the airport's bees.

In addition, we can cite the installation of dry urinals in the terminals, the fact that we are the first international airport to collect and recycle cigarette butts, and we are working to reduce single-use plastics by eliminating cups and replacing them with re-usable water bottles and mugs for staff.

Although there are many other challenges on our calendar, we still strive to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030.
