Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGI), New Delhi has become the first airport in Asia-Pacific to be recognized as carbon-neutral. This announcement was made in Montreal, Canada by the Airports Council International (ACI). The status of Carbon neutrality is granted when the net carbon emissions over an entire year is zero.
The concept of Carbon Neutrality is that the airport offsets or absorbs the same amount of emission which is generated.
The IGI airport currently produces 2.14 MW power from solar energy aims at increasing it up to 7.84 MW, making it largely dependent on green energy.
