OLGA ‒ hOListic Green Airport ‒ is a new project approved under #EUGreenDeal. It is set to develop innovative sustainable measures for reducing both airside and landside emissions of airports. L-up is thrilled to be part of this ambitious endeavour!
OLGA aims to reduce the environmental impact of air transportation, thus facilitating the transition to low-carbon mobility and a climate-resilient society in line with the EU Green Deal.
Focusing on boosting environmental performance and involving the entire value chain, OLGA will develop innovative sustainable measures to reduce both airside and landside emissions of airports, with proven scalability and EU-wide applicability. OLGA strives to achieve CO2 and other GHG reduction, air quality improvement, biodiversity preservation, energy use reduction and sustainable construction concepts. Quantifiable advances are expected within the first three years already, thus accelerating the exploitation of results.
The OLGA partners (airports, airlines, cargo handlers, aeronautic industry, research, SMEs) unite vast expertise to solve the complex challenge. The consortium comprises 42 partners from nine EU countries. It is led by Groupe ADP (Aéroports de Paris), with Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport as frontrunner. Other participating airports are Milan Malpensa, Zagreb, and Cluj.
The project’s Advisory Board (AB) consists of 29 members including academia, aeronautic and mobility companies, airports, industry, and territorial administrations.
OLGA’s total budget is 34 million euros, out of which 25 million euros will be granted by the European Commission over the project duration of 60 months. Grant agreement ID: 101036871.
