Schiphol’s Vision 2050
Connecting your world embodies the 'Why' of Royal Schiphol Group. By creating the world's most sustainable, high quality airports our company allows international trade, tourism and knowledge exchange to flourish by providing top-quality aviation infrastructure and air transport facilities for passengers and cargo.
By ensuring optimal air connectivity for the Netherlands, we are supporting the economy while also helping to promote the traditional Dutch values of openness, tolerance and international-mindedness for which we are known around the world. We do this with the support of our many partners across the aviation sector and beyond, including airlines, Royal Netherlands Marechaussee, Customs, national and local government, business partners, landside infrastructure providers, air traffic control and other key stakeholders.
At the same time, Schiphol is aware that our activities impact different groups in different ways. We therefore strive to balance the contribution we make in providing optimal links to connect the Netherlands to the wider world against the negative effects of aviation on the quality of life of local residents as well as the wider environmental impact of air travel. We do this through careful monitoring of noise pollution, local air quality and carbon emissions, as well as other key sustainability concerns.
Quality of life, quality of network and quality of service are at the core of our vision for the future. We want to be the world’s most sustainable and high-quality airports. To achieve this, connecting the Netherlands with the rest of the world while minimising our impact on the living environment and climate is essential. It is from this perspective that we read the draft Aviation Memorandum 2020-2050. This is our approach to it.
