Finavia signs agreement for carbon neutral heating at Rovaniemi Airport

Finnish airport operator, Finavia, and Napapiirin Energia ja Vesi (Neve) have entered into an agreement for the heating of Rovaniemi Airport (RVN) with carbon-neutral district heating.

“We have worked systematically to reduce the climate impact of our airports for over 10 years now. We reached an important milestone two years ago when all of our airports became carbon neutral. Our objective is to achieve zero net emissions in 2030, and we continue on our journey towards emissions-free airports. The cooperation with Neve is an important step along this journey,” says Henri Hansson, Senior Vice President of Airport Infrastructure, Sustainability, Safety, Security and Compliance at Finavia.

The climate impact of airports originates from the heating of buildings and the energy consumption of vehicles. “In order to eliminate our carbon dioxide emissions, we must focus on increasing the use of renewable energy and improving our energy efficiency,”

Vihreä Lähilämpö (Neve’s carbon-neutral district heating product) is an excellent choice for Rovaniemi Airport, because it supports the key measures to reduce carbon dioxide emissions that Finavia has identified in its climate programme. Neve produces its district heat from renewable and locally-sourced fuels.
