Arup targets green goals for Mexican airport

Arup has been appointed to develop a sustainability masterplan for Mexico City New International Airport (NAICM).

The goal of Grupo Aeroportuario de la Ciudad de Mexico (GACM) is for NAICM to be environmentally sustainable and to be the first airport in the world to obtain the LEED Platinum certification v4 at its main terminal.

The NAICM project aims to triple Mexico City's existing airport capacity for passengers and cargo. It is expected to start operations by late 2020, with a capacity of receiving around 68 million passengers.

GACM seeks to adopt international best practices related to green airport operations by using renewable energy resources, promoting the use of public transport, and developing programmes that would protect the environment, including water resources, energy efficiency, waste management, existing wildlife, and vegetation.

"We are excited about the selection of Arup. They have been involved in this project from the outset and their knowledge and global experience will provide us with a clear roadmap to achieve our goals," said Sandra González Navarro of GACM.
