Forum 2040 begins with information meeting for all candidates
The opening meeting of Forum 2040 took place on the evening of Thursday 22 June. All eligible candidates for the Forum 2040 were invited to attend this meeting. Brussels Airport Company briefly explained the Strategic Vision 2040 and also the further progress of Forum 2040. All participants were given the opportunity to ask questions at length during the meeting.
Brussels Airport has taken the initiative to start Forum 2040 because the airport believes in the value of an open dialogue where the opinion of everyone is respected and because the content of the discussions can reveal new information and insights about the Strategic Vision 2040 based on the various positions and so help the airport operator enrich and refine it.
Further progress of Forum 2040
At the end of August, an independent jury will choose 80 participants for the Forum 2040 from more than 230 candidates. When making their selection, the jury will ensure a balanced representation based on the motivation given by the candidates for participating in Forum 2040, their place of residence and their profile. In the autumn, in-depth dialogue sessions will be held on the topics of mobility, landside and airside development.
Together with 192 other airports from 24 different countries, Brussels Airport is signing up to the ‘NetZeroCarbon2050’ resolution from the ACI Europe airport association not to emit any more CO2 at the latest by 2050.
