Green Airport Strategy

Green Airport Strategy

Our vision is to ensure that Berlin Brandenburg Airport is operated in a manner that is as energy-efficient, resource-saving and environmentally-friendly as possible. We also aim to convince all our business partners, suppliers and passengers to work with us to help us realise this vision.


The airport company has turned its principles for dealing with energy and the environment into binding guidelines.


All processes at the airport are to be structured to ensure compliance with environmental legislation and regulations.

This air quality monitoring point on the grounds of Schönefeld Airport documents the emissions caused by air traffic.


Biomonitoring is a key part of the Environment Study Programme. Kale plants are examined for pollutants from air traffic

Honey monitoring

Is honey from BER vicinity safe for consumption? Monitoring examines honey, pollen and honeycombs for signs of pollution


The myth of kerosene dumping prior to landing is a stubborn myth in air traffic. This only happens in emergencies.
