In June 2015, Aéroports de Paris was the first group managing a large airport system to obtain ISO 50001 certification for its operation and development of airports in Île-de-France and its energy management system (EMS) based on fossil fuels and renewables (biomass, geothermal, photovoltaic). The follow-up audit in 2016 recorded an improvement in operational management. The certification for environmental management systems covers: ◆ adherence to environmental regulations; ◆ availability of the necessary human and financial resources; ◆ a systematic approach to improving the main environmental impacts (waste, water, emissions into the atmosphere, energy use, etc.); ◆ competence of all employees through training, awareness-raising or information; ◆ operational management of the impact of operations in both normal and emergency situations; ◆ monitoring of performances via audits (internal or external) and other environmental surveillance and measuring procedures (mostly conducted by the Groupe ADP lab, ISO 9001-certified and accredited by the French accreditation committee COFRAC). Throughout the year, employees are made aware of issues relating to the preservation and protection of the environment as well as energy control. Information is shared via internal environmental communication tools, particularly, the electronic document management system, the EcoCharter and articles in Groupe ADP’s internal Connexion newspaper and intranet site. A new Energy training course is currently being deployed and 200 employees will be trained by 2020. Specific operations have also been launched: free distribution of LED bulbs to employees, edition and diffusion of comical films to raise awareness on energy management, etc. Preventative measures to reduce and remedy air emissions Groupe ADP is committed to preventing collective pollution risks in four areas: air, water, noise and soil. Measures to reduce and recycle air discharge waste Groupe ADP has implemented an ambitious policy to reduce CO 2 1 emissions and atmospheric pollutants linked to its activities and facilities, and its energy production units in particular. It has fixed five main objectives by 2020: ◆ account for 25% of clean vehicles 2 in its light vehicle fleet 3 , reduce the emissions of the other vehicles, develop electric vehicle recharging terminals in its airports; ◆ maintain Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Paris-Orly and Paris-Le Bourget airports at level 3 Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA); ◆ continue its mobility plan and actively contribute to inter-company mobility plans for Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Paris-Orly and Paris-Le Bourget airports; ◆ limit and reduce the emissions of aircraft on the ground (taxiing and parking) and ground handling vehicles (GSE) 4 ;
◆ reduce the emissions associated with airport access and internal circulation. Accredited by COFRAC, the French accreditation committee, its laboratory operates five air quality measuring stations at the Paris-Orly and Paris-Charles de Gaulle airports. It records emissions from planes, thermal stations and road transport resulting from airport activities and conducts air quality studies inside the terminals, car parks and technical buildings. It continuously measures levels of nitrogen dioxide (NO 2 ) and nitric oxide (NO), particles (PM 2.5) and ozone (O 3 ) levels). Groupe ADP is also involved in public policies and helped to review the 2017-2020 atmosphere protection plan (AAP) for the Paris agglomeration. The AAP sets out measures to improve air quality in the region. Preventative measures to reduce and remedy water discharge Groupe ADP has set itself three main objectives by 2020: ◆ reduce drinking water consumption per passenger by 5% compared to 2014; ◆ as part of a water masterplan, define rainwater management rules by zone taking into account adaptation to climate change; ◆ continue to improve the management of winter pollution. At the Paris-Orly and Paris-Charles de Gaulle airports, in addition to pollution catch basins and retention basins, Aéroports de Paris has water treatment stations to meet the regulatory requirements for discharge into the natural environment imposed by an inter-prefectural order specific to each airport. Paris-Orly airport also has a 2,000 sq.m. wetland filtration facility, which optimises the treatment of rainwater. To improve the regulation of rainwater discharge, Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport has constructed clean and more polluted water segregation basins as well as a connection for the most winter polluted water to the wastewater network. Aéroports de Paris is committed to limiting newly sealed surfaces favouring infiltration wherever possible and, failing this, to offset sealed surfaces with retention ponds. As part of a water masterplan, zoning defining rainwater management rules by zone was created to promote infiltration and limit the maximum the flow of leaks from retention ponds to: ◆ 1 litre/second/hectare for Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport (rainwater storage capacity equivalent to 550 m 3 per hectare); ◆ 10 litres/second/hectare for the catchment basin from the Morée river to Paris-Le Bourget airport. After treatment, the wastewater produced at Aéroports de Paris airports is discharged into public sewers. A procedure for monitoring the wastewater produced as a result of the activities of Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Paris-Orly and Paris-Le Bourget and the industries of the airport zone is in place. Groupe ADP’s laboratory monitors the quality of the rainwater discharged into the natural environment as well as the water table level thanks to a network of measuring points (piezometers).
