Environmental Management Policy
In facing intensified global warming and frequent climate change, tackling climate change has been fused into the overall strategy of national economic and social development. A solemn commitment has been made on striving to achieve “Dual Carbon Goals” of carbon peak and carbon neutrality with adopting more vigorous policies and measures for carbon reduction. To cope with the national development strategy, Macao S.A.R. is also focusing on green development by chartering the direction of attaining the goals for carbon reduction.
Macau International Airport as one of major infrastructures in Macao and the gateway to other countries and regions, Macau International Airport Co. Ltd.
