Dubai Airports, operator of the world's busiest international airport, Dubai International (DXB), has joined the Airports Council International (ACI) and World Economic Forum (WEF) in their joint effort, Airports of Tomorrow.

By coordinating efforts in energy, infrastructure, and funding, this alliance hopes to lead the aviation sector to reach net-zero carbon emissions by the year 2050. Sven Deckers, Director of Strategy Planning at Dubai Airports, stressed the need for cooperation to resolve aviation's environmental sustainability issues. This news is being announced when COP28 is taking place in Dubai.

Dubai International hosted a tour of its facilities for the Airports of Tomorrow delegation, who learned about the airport's large solar energy system, waste diversion initiatives, and continuing work for electric ground operations vehicles, among other sustainability accomplishments. The airport also highlighted energy-efficient lighting renovations and the extensive use of LEDs to improve building efficiency.
