Delhi's IGI Airport to be net zero carbon emission airport by 2030

Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) in New Delhi is on track to become a net zero carbon emission airport by 2030.

In technical terms, carbon-neutral refers to a policy of not increasing carbon emissions while reducing them through offsets.

According to Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL), a GMR-led consortium that operates the airport, it is committed to conducting business in an environmentally friendly and sustainable manner by minimising the negative impact of its operations on the environment by implementing necessary pollution control systems and safeguards.

At DIAL, several initiatives have been implemented, including the use of renewable energy, the development of green airport infrastructures and multiple passenger connectivity networks, energy conservation and efficiency improvements, and stakeholder partnership programmes.

Electric vehicle charging stations, state-of-the-art sewage and water treatment plants, energy-efficient lighting systems, and advanced fuel hydrant systems are among the infrastructure's energy-efficient and environmentally friendly features.

DIAL has also taken several technologically advanced measures, including the adoption of electric vehicles and Taxibots.

The Indira Gandhi International Airport serves Delhi, India, as well as the rest of northern India. The airport is located in Palam, 15 km or 9.3 miles south of the New Delhi Railway Station and 16 km or 9.9 miles from the city centre of New Delhi.

Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) is a joint venture between GMR Group (54%) and the Airports Authority of India (26%) as well as Fraport AG and Eraman Malaysia (10% each). The consortium's lead member is GMR, which is joined by Fraport AG, the airport operator, and Eraman Malaysia, the retail advisor.
