Conserving water

We acknowledge that potable water is increasingly becoming a precious resource. We actively conserve water and continue to explore opportunities to introduce non-potable water use across the precinct.

In 2021 we set a target to achieve a 20% reduction in potable water use from 2019 levels by 2030.

Auckland Airport’s significant reductions in potable water use between FY20 – 22 were largely due to the much lower passenger numbers as a result of COVID-19 restrictions in these years.

Water efficiency in our terminals

We are continuing to implement a rolling programme to upgrade fixtures and fittings that support water efficiency in-use, and prevent leaks.

All upgrades include a third pipe to allow the use of recycled water when it becomes available across the precinct.
