Heathrow’s aim is to provide passengers with the best airport service in the world whilst connecting passengers, and British businesses, with markets all around the globe.
The biggest source of carbon that we directly control is the gas we burn to heat Heathrow’s buildings. Our proposed solution is based on electrification of space and hot water heating with recovery of surplus heat in summer and storage for use in winter months. This will be a major investment and a complex project which will take us 10-15 years to complete. We are targeting zero carbon buildings by 2035. To hit our goal we will also need alternatives to the refrigerants used in our air-conditioning and Government regulation will be important here.
Recognizing it will take alignment of all our organizations to scale impact globally, we invite you to join the movement as a Steward of Inclusive Capitalism. Together, the collective action of Council members will contribute to a fairer, more inclusive and sustainable future for all people and our planet.
