A recent audit of Leeds Bradford Airport has resulted in the facility being awarded an ISO 14001 certification. The airport was reaccredited with the international standard for environment management after successfully demonstrating to auditors environmentally aware business management practices and corporate environmental responsibility.

The audit examined all of the businesses at the airport and found several to excel. The highest rating was awarded to Burger King, Yates’, Food Village and O’Briens.

Airport spokesperson, Tony Hallwood, commented on the accreditation, saying how “delighted” the airport was to have achieved certification. He said: “It goes a long way in demonstrating our ongoing commitment towards effectively managing our environmental issues.

“We are very proud of our business partners and the hard work and commitment that they have put into making sure that Leeds Bradford Airport makes for a clean, safe and comfortable environment from which our customers can start their journey.”

Leeds Bradford Airport was publically owned until May 2007, when it sold for the price of £145.5 million to Bridgepoint Capital from Leeds, Bradford, Wakefield, Calderdale and Kirklees councils. Under the new ownership, the airport hopes to increase passenger numbers to 7 million per year by the year 2015.
