The environmental work is very important at Stockholm Skavsta Airport. We are aware that our business activities have environmental consequences and all the time we seek to minimize those effects. Read more about our environmental work below, where you also can report any noise related complaints.
Our environment is prioritized in our business. We are constantly working to improve our environmental work. In the brochure “Our Environment – towards a greener airport” we present some of our environmental work areas, how we can improve them and some green facts about aviation.
The Stockholm Skavsta Airport Environmental Permit allows the airport to handle up to 75 000 movements/year (one movement is one aircraft start or landing) and 6 million passengers per year.
The current Environmental Permit is issued in 2007, after a long application process which included extensive investigations and several consultations with both authorities and the public.
