Our Commitment to the Environment

At Moorabbin Airport we’re committed to building a strong and vibrant aviation, industry and business community while managing and developing the Airport in an environmentally responsible way.  In support of this we’ve developed a variety of systems and programs to manage environmental issues on the Airport.  We have undertaken numerous investigations and undertaken substantial works to improve and protect the environment both on and surrounding the Airport.

We’re committed to continuing to develop and improve these systems, programs and works to ensure better environmental outcomes both on the airport and within the surrounding community. For more information see our Environment strategy

Environmental Regulation

Moorabbin Airport is leased from the Commonwealth therefore management of environmental matters at the Airport is regulated under the Airports Act 1996 and the Airports (Environment Protection) Regulations 1997. Because the Airport operates on Commonwealth land it is also subject to the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999.  State environmental legislation applies on Moorabbin Airport only to the extent that it is consistent with Commonwealth law, or if there is no Commonwealth legislation addressing a matter. Given environmental issues may cross jurisdictional boundaries we regularly consult State government agencies on the best environmental management practices for application at the Airport.
