Ricardo Sustainable Airport Forum 2022

Ricardo Sustainable Airport Forum 2022
13 Oct 2022
Gatwick, UK

Join us at this free one-day sustainability forum for UK airports at Gatwick this October. At this event we will address some of the major sustainability, environmental, and energy challenges that airports are currently facing and will need to consider in the future. This forum will build on a popular event that Ricardo held at Edinburgh airport in 2019.

Agenda topics

Jet Zero: What does it mean for airports?

PFAS chemicals: Persistent ‘forever chemicals’ are receiving a lot of attention. They are present in fire retardant and firefighting solutions and lead to water supply contamination. Consequently, they are serious issue for airports and subject to increased regulation.

Energy use and infrastructure: Future infrastructure required for airports in integrating alternative energy solutions.

Hydrogen as a fuel: What are the security and safety considerations regarding hydrogen? Retrofitting vehicles for hydrogen will also be discussed.

A full agenda for the event will be available soon.

Who should attend?

The forum will be of particular relevance to airport employees working in the following roles: heads of sustainability, environmental managers, sustainability managers, operations managers, heads of projects / development managers, heads of engineering.  We want to focus the discussions on actions that can drive change.
