Heathrow’s Matt Gorman awarded MBE for ? reducing airport’s carbon emissions?
Matt Gorman, who has been Heathrow’s “Sustainability Director” for years, and is now its “Carbon Strategy Director” has been awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours, for his work in cutting the airport’s carbon emissions. He has not, of course, reduced the emissions of the planes using Heathrow. Far from it, he has been a keen advocate of a Heathrow 3rd runway, would could increase the carbon emissions by 50%. But he is keen for the airport to be “carbon neutral” and has aspirations for it to be zero-carbon. In reality the carbon emissions of “Scope 1″ and ” Scope 2″ activities at the airport, and even the “Scope 3” activities, excluding the aircraft, amount to well below 1MtCO2 per year, (2018) while the flights that year emitted around 18MtCO2. But Matt will have been nominated by someone for the award, and that has to be approved the Cabinet Office and the Queen. Heathrow’s John Holland-Kaye was at the G7 as Heathrow signed up to Prince Charles’ Terra Carta initiative – all the businesses who are part of that were invited to Cornwall – so they could mix with the leaders. .Tweet Story title: “Heathrow Airport: Berkshire dad gets MBE on Queen’s Birthday Honours List for work to make travel greener” – sic Matthew Gorman is Carbon Strategy Director for the airport By Hugh Fort, Reporter 11 JUN 2021 A Berkshire man who has overseen major projec
