Brussels South Charleroi Airport is actively working to optimise heating and cooling facilities by installing brand new efficient systems.  

The airport has also rolled out LED lighting, as well as optimising its lighting management thanks to an automatic, configured, centralised system.   Lastly, in 2020, Brussels South Charleroi Airport commissioned its photovoltaic system.

Installed on the roof of terminal 2, 1,560 photovoltaic panels have been fitted. They make it possible to produce 438Mwh a year, thus reducing CO₂ emissions by 263 tonnes/year.
