Although airport operations contribute only a small amount to local pollutant concentrations, London City Airport is committed to minimising any negative environmental impacts, and is working to reduce its own emissions, and encouraging the airlines and other companies to do the same.
To drive this forward, London City Airport has published an Air Quality Action Plan that sets out a range of measures to be implemented up until 2015. These measures aim to reduce emissions from:
- Ground-based aircraft support equipment

London City Airport also operates a comprehensive Air Quality Measurement Programme at sites in and around the airport to ensure that its operations do not adversely affect the local community. Copies of the 2010 and 2011 Annual Reports can be downloaded below.
