Traffic is growing once again – and environmental concerns grow in tandem. The more aircraft in their vicinity, the more people worry about noise, greenhouse gases and the quality of air.
Pressure on airport stakeholders increases – and one pragmatic way of relieving this pressure is to act collaboratively to minimise aviation’s impact on the local environment.
EUROCONTROL’s CEM approach helps airport stakeholders to agree on common solutions to the environmental challenges.
We have just released the latest update of the CEM Specification. It contains the CEM working arrangement, a pragmatic protocol that is adaptable to local needs.
The CEM working arrangement gives operational stakeholders a platform for discussion and supports them in:
- identifying synergies
- quantifying impacts
- reaching compromises
- minimising environmental impact at the airport and nearby
- maximising their current operations’ potential
- ensuring sustainable growth for the airport and its partners
- complying with the relevant European regulations.
