Cardiff Airport achieves British Standard for Environmental Management

An extensive audit of Cardiff Airport’s environmental management system has led to the achievement of phase two of the BS 8555:2003 Seren Standard accreditation. This recognises the Airport’s commitment towards legal compliance, environmental performance and continued improvement. 

The standard was awarded following a full two-day inspection, which included an in-depth audit of environmental processes and a detailed inspection of the entire Cardiff Airport site including the terminal, car parks and airfield.

Debra Barber, Managing Director at Cardiff Airport, commented: “We have recently completely overhauled our entire environmental management system, putting in new objectives and robust operational procedures. The audit was very much an opportunity for us to test this new system and to be recognised for our commitment to environmental sustainability.

“Participation in the Seren Scheme will enable us to control our environmental impact, fulfil our responsibilities to the maximum extent and, most importantly, continue to improve. We have also recently been named a ‘zero waste to landfill’ zone, which is a further testament to this. I am immensely proud of the team for this great achievement.”

Cardiff Airport will continue to work towards the completion of all six phases of the accreditation in addition to the ‘Green Ticks’ scheme.
