Reducing environmental impacts

Responsible Heathrow logo

International airports like Heathrow have significant impacts on the environment.

By working closely with our people, other Heathrow companies and national and international organisations, we aim to continuously improve our performance and reduce our impacts.

Our ambition

To prevent, reduce or offset Heathrow's impacts on the environment and enhance positive effects.

See our Environmental Policy for detailed information on our environmental managing principles and strategy.

To take a look at the environmental and sustainability projects taking place across Heathrow, you can watch a series of videos featuring Heathrow employees helping to improve the local environment.
