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 new target to achieve a 20% reduction in potable water use from 2019 levels by 2030.

The 2021 financial year has been extraordinary for the aviation industry. Although domestic passenger numbers returned to 77% of pre-COVID-19 levels in the final quarter of FY21, international passenger numbers remain significantly lower than usual. This is reflected in Auckland Airport’s water usage.

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.
