SUSTAINABILITY - OUR SECOND DECADE OF CHANGE TO 2030

Sustainability is part of everything we do

Gatwick continues to work towards being the UK’s most sustainable airport. There’s still more to do.

Our next Decade of Change sustainability policy takes us to 2030. It builds on the success of our first 10 point plan.

Our new goals will continue our great work on the community and local environment. They will also increase our emphasis on people and on emissions.
