Promoting aviation and airport sustainability for World Environment Day


Since 1972 and the opening of the Stockholm Convention on the Human Environment, World Environment Day (WED) has been celebrated every 5th of June as an initiative to stimulate global awareness of environmental issues and encourage action.


To mark the celebration of WED2018, the ICAO Committee for Aviation Environmental Protection (CAEP) has launched a new publication under ICAO’s Eco-Airport e-collection. It provides practical guidance on how to design and implement effective waste management policies at airports, while at the same time creating social and economic value.

World Environment Day is a day to come together to ensure a cleaner, greener and brighter outlook for ourselves and future generations, and ICAO is pleased to be joining the many UN system and civil society stakeholders who come together around it to make today’s aspirations tomorrow’s realities.
