At London Stansted Airport we care about our community. As a major international airport and thriving economic hub within the South East, we consider it our responsibility to combine growing success and future development with an environmentally sound infrastructure.
The following website sections outline our policies and procedures involved with minimising and improving our environmental impact to surrounding communities, alongside detailing how local businesses and sectors can benefit from our various community projects and charitable work.
London Stansted Airport's status as a major international airport naturally brings about a challenging series of tasks when looking to reduce overall environmental impact for the benefit of local communities.
We have a wide range of policies and procedures aiming to reduce key environmental impacts such as aircraft noise and air quality, while surface transport, energy, waste, water and land quality, water use, and biodiversity are other important considerations we factor into our comprehensive local environmental strategies.
There are various ways we endeavour to give back to our local community which has accepted the airport as its economic and international transport hub.
There are many economic and social benefits to living near the airport, including the ability to apply for funding across a diverse range of local sectors, alongside various opportunities for businesses big and small to align themselves with the airport with exciting ventures.
Stansted Airport takes our wider community seriously. We arrange regular Community Outreach sessions in the airport's surrounding area, allowing us to respond to queries regarding operations at Stansted, along with providing members of the community with a platform to voice their opinions.
