Report of the World Commission on Environment and Development: Our Common Future (1987) defined sustainable development as development that “meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” . In 20215, 193 United Nations countries (including Poland) adopted the programme “Transforming Our World: 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”, which contains 17 Goals and 169 Targets in the areas of environment, society, economy, and rule of law. The European Union has also made sustainability part of its strategy – an example is the European Green Deal, a package of ambitious policies aimed at achieving climate neutrality by 2050.
The aviation sector is taking ambitious measures to minimise its impact on the environment and communities, ranging from the implementation of sustainable jet fuel to the electrification of ground handling equipment, to increasing the share of renewable energy sources in the energy mix.
We hereby present the CPK Airport Sustainability Statement, a document outlining the directions we will follow. We are making an investment that will be used by future generations – we want to make sure that the way we do this will not negatively impact their prosperity.
