OMA - Grupo Aeroportuario Centro Norte » Environment


OMA is committed to care the environment and for this purpose performs actions to mitigate and compensate the environmental impacts resulting from airport service activities and construction expansions. The priority of these actions is consistent with our compliance reference frame and environmental responsibility.

Environmental Impact

OMA identifies and evaluates both environmental aspects and impacts resulting from its processes considering the severity of the effects and probability of the occurrence of an event. Significant Environmental Aspects

Environmental Management

OMA accounts with the Environmental Quality Certificate issued by the Federal Environmental Protection Agency (PROFEPA) for 12 of its airports. This distinction is obtained in recognition of the implemented actions to improve environmental quality in the field of water, air, soil, and subsoil, handling of hazardous and non-hazardous waste, electricity and training.

Our integrated Management System allows us to establish environmental goals and a framework for the achievement of such. In 2011, we reached the ISO 14001:2004 Certificate in a multisite scheme for our 13 airports, which provides us of a new methodology for auto evaluation, and confirm compliance and consistency with our environmental policy.

Environmental Performance

OMA’s environmental performance is measured with indicators that reflect the effectiveness of the Operational Program of Environmental Protection implemented in all its airports:

  • Water consumption (m3)
  • Energy consumption (Kw/ h)
  • Generation of hazardous waste (tons).
  • Generation of non-hazardous waste (tons).

You can find more information about Environment performance in our Sustainability Report.


Due to the geographic location of our airports, the biological diversity of the lands may be significant. For this matter, we carry out different action among which are:

  • The Fauna Control Plan that includes a study of the wild flora and fauna.
  • Preservation of mangrove at airports where areas with this type of vegetation are located.

Climate Change

Climate change is relevant for OMA; therefore, we carry out research and viability analysis of:

  • The use of renewable energy.
  • Calculations of the CO2 footprint of OMA.
  • The use of sustainable infrastructure with the reuse of treated water, use of cooling systems that causes less environmental impact and use of energy efficiency.
