Colin Matthews // Chief Executive

Our purpose at Heathrow is “Making every journey better”. In 2013 we achieved the highest ever levels of both passenger satisfaction and passenger numbers. According to the independently measured passenger satisfaction score, 75% of Heathrow’s passengers rate their experience as excellent or very good.

We delivered robust operational performance while operating close to capacity. 470,000 flights arrived and departed from Heathrow during 2013. On average, aircraft were larger and fuller than in previous years, which led to a 3.4% growth in passenger numbers, to a record 72.3 million.

We have continued to invest in transforming Heathrow, spending £11 billion of private money to improve the passenger experience since 2004. Our new terminal 2, The Queen’s Terminal, is our most recent and visible transformation and when it opens in June 2014 more than 60% of Heathrow passengers will be travelling through our newest terminals, T2 and T5.

Our new five-year economic regulatory and business planning period (‘Q6’) began on 1 April 2014. Our five-year business plan sets out operational and investment programmes to continue the transformation of Heathrow, improving passenger service, and delivering operating and environmental efficiencies.

“Making every journey better” includes operating the airport responsibly. We work hard to be a good neighbour to our local communities, to manage our environmental impact and maximise the economic benefits that Heathrow brings.

Noise is a significant environmental issue for Heathrow and our stakeholders. During 2013, we stayed at the forefront of international efforts to tackle aircraft noise and published ‘A Quieter Heathrow’ setting out our commitments to reducing aircraft noise while safeguarding the UK’s connectivity.

‘A Quieter Heathrow’ outlines the important steps that are being taken to reduce aircraft noise: the world’s first public ranking of airlines according to their ‘noise performance’; trialing new departure routes and improving our noise insulation schemes. We’re also exploring innovative solutions to noise insulation for local schools such as providing funds to install ‘adobe’ buildings for outdoor learning.

To communicate Heathrow’s commitment to being a responsible business regarding noise and other key topics, we have pulled together the leading goals from our sustainability plans and strategies into a single document. ‘Responsible Heathrow 2020’ sets out our top ten goals to reduce environmental impact, support economic growth and invest in communities; while looking after passengers and our people. Each of our goals is aligned to our five-year business plan and is supported by a detailed strategy and action plan.

Britain is better off when we’re connected. The world economy is changing quickly and Britain needs a world-class hub airport with the capacity to compete against Paris, Frankfurt and Amsterdam. At the end of 2012, the UK Government established an independent Airports Commission to explore whether additional airport capacity was needed in the UK. In December 2013, we welcomed the Commission’s interim report which shortlisted Heathrow’s north-west runway proposal as one of three options for additional airport capacity.

As well as connecting Britain to growth markets across the world, a third runway at Heathrow will protect more than 100,000 existing local jobs and create tens of thousands of new jobs nationwide – strengthening our local employment, apprenticeships and skills programmes and supporting a strong supply chain throughout the UK.

For our final submission to the Commission during 2014, we are creating a proposal to deliver the capacity Britain needs whilst also reducing the total number of local people affected by aircraft noise. By positioning the new runway further west from London, introducing more quieter, new generation aircraft and developing new operating procedures, we will reduce by 30% the number of people within Heathrow’s noise footprint in 2030 than there are today.

By incentivising cleaner aircraft, supporting global carbon trading and increasing public transport use, we will also keep CO 2 emissions within UK climate change targets and play our part in meeting local air quality limits.

We are improving performance today, through our commitments made in ‘Responsible Heathrow 2020’, and defining clear commitments for Heathrow’s future growth.

REDUCING ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS

NOISE

Heathrow delivers significant benefits for the UK, but there are downsides too, including the impact of noise on local residents. Heathrow is already at the forefront of international management of aircraft noise and continues to work hard to reduce its impact by encouraging quieter aircraft and operating

procedures and supporting local communities with noise insulation and compensation programmes.

PERFORMANCE SUMMARY 5 9 3,000 vehicles reduce emissions Cleaner vehicles, cleaner Heathrow Emissions from vehicles

Cleaner vehicles, cleaner Heathrow

Emissions from vehicles used by companies based at the airport are an important source of emissions at Heathrow, and an opportunity for change and reduction in collaboration with our partners. That’s why we created the Heathrow Clean Vehicles Partnership.

The Clean Vehicles Partnership is funded by Heathrow to encourage and facilitate collaboration between companies operating vehicles at Heathrow to reduce costs and emissions. Last year, Heathrow’s Clean Vehicle Partnership celebrated 10 years of working together.

The Partnership of 22 Heathrow companies reduce emissions from their 3,000 vehicles through trials of new, cleaner vehicle types, driver training and emissions monitoring tools, workshops and networking events to share best practice.

LOCAL AIR POLLUTION

A range of emissions in European and UK cities contribute to local air pollution and we are committed to playing our part in improving air quality in the local area around Heathrow. As well as activities at the airport, local emissions come from surrounding roads, industry and housing. We are working with partners to reduce emissions from aircraft, vehicles

and buildings to make sure we act as a responsible neighbour and play our part in meeting EU and UK Government limits.

Little changes go a long way

Reducing energy use at Heathrow isn’t just about the big initiatives. Over 2013, our energy team worked with partners across the airport to make little changes that add up to big energy savings.

From replacing fluorescent lighting with low energy LED and installing automatic lighting controls, to turning off advertising screens for just one extra hour per night, we managed to make some big differences, saving 3.7 GWh from LED projects alone – that’s a cost saving of about £400,000.

Monitoring invertebrates at Clockhouse Lane Pit

Designed to treat de-icer coming from the airport using natural processes, Mayfield Farm is a leading edgewater treatment facility that removes around seven tonnes of organic pollution from the airport’s surface run off each year.

The water containing de-icer from the airfield is sent to a set of reedbeds where naturally occurring bacteria can break down around 95% of the de-icer, leaving clean water that can be released back into local watercourses.

As well as its biodiversity benefits, the system is much lower in energy consumption compared to the concrete structures previously used, making it cleaner and cheaper to run.

With approximately 1,330 aircraft movements a day, 25,000 vehicles and 80,000 staff on site it’s essential that we communicate and embrace a safe culture. We all have a responsibility to identify and report potential hazards. We can only maintain a safe environment through the combined efforts of everyone on site practising a Just Safety Culture.

Derek Provan // Director of Airside Operations

LOOKING AFTER PASSENGERS AND OUR PEOPLE

SAFETY

Keeping everyone safe is one of our values and always our first concern. Looking after everyone at Heathrow is critical to being a responsible business and to running our airport efficiently.

OUR COMMITMENT ENSURE THAT NOBODY AT THE AIRPORT IS AFFECTED BY ACCIDENT, ILLNESS OR INJURY.

FOOTNOTES

COMPANY INFORMATION

1 Source: Heathrow Airport Limited (HAL) audited annual accounts.

2 Earnings before interest and tax.

3 Figure for Heathrow payroll as at 31 December 2012.

4 Includes routes that are operated at least 52 times per year.

5 Heathrow undertakes research into passenger experience at Heathrow using a Quality Service Monitor (QSM) survey. Around 37,000 passengers participate in the survey each year, which rates specific elements relating to the departure and arrival experience. The rating is based on a scale with 1 = very poor, 5 = excellent.

NOISE

1 The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) sets progressively tighter certifications for civil aircraft, with performance standards described as ‘Chapters’. ICAO requires that aircraft manufactured from 2006 onward must meet the requirements of the Chapter 4 noise standard. For noise charging purposes we have sub-divided Chapter 4 aircraft into High, Base and Low categories and make higher charges for the noisier aircraft.

2 See Footnote 1 for definition of ‘Chapter’. Within the broader Chapters, aircraft are referred to as Chapter 3 ‘high’ and ‘minus’ to reflect aircraft at the top and bottom end of the Chapter 3 standard noise range.

3 Continuous Descent Approach (CDA) is designed to reduce fuel consumption and noise by maintaining a constant 3° descent angle during the approach to the runway before landing, rather than a traditional stepped approach.

4 The Government has set noise controls on night flights at Heathrow. Between 2330 and 0600, aircraft movements are limited to a specific number and noise level.

5 Measurement commenced 2013. We wrote to 2,326 properties in total.

6 Runway alternation provides communities with predictable periods of relief from aircraft noise.

7 During the summer of 2012 we received a significant increase in aircraft noise complaints. There were a number of reasons for this including the second phase of the Operational Freedoms trial which started on 1 July 2012 and ran until 28 February 2013. The trial is exploring how certain procedures could be used to help reduce delays at Heathrow. Of the total number of complaints 27.62% were from the top five complainants, 38.43% from the top 10 and 51.81% from the top 25 complainants.

LOCAL AIR POLLUTION

1 The International Civil Aviation Organization’s Committee on Environmental Protection (CAEP) regularly tightens aircraft engine emissions standards to take technological advances into consideration. The current standard, CAEP/6, came into force in 2008 and requires 12% lower NOX emissions that its predecessor, CAEP/4.

2 Heathrow sets limits for the use of APUs (Auxiliary Power Units or on-board engines) when aircraft are on the ground, to manage emissions. To reduce the need for APUs, 90% of aircraft stands are fitted with electricity connections and 20% provide pre-conditioned air.

3 On the whole, aircraft emissions are on a downward trend from a 2008/9 baseline. We updated our methodology in 2013 to provide more accurate data.

4 Relates to 2011 – 2020 action plan.

5 Available in summer 2014.

CLIMATE CHANGE

1 Carbon dioxide equivalent.

2 Includes electricity consumption, gas, gasoil and biomass consumption in boilers; also includes Heathrow Express Depot electricity and gas consumption, but NOT traction energy.

3 Calculated from fixed asset energy using DEFRA/DECC CarbonSmart emissions factors for the relevant year. Emissions factor for grid electricity has reduced, which explains the very small increase in CO2 emissions compared to increase in energy use.

4 Travel to work and business travel.

5 This covers HAL owned vehicles, or those where there is a defined service relationship where HAL is responsible for fuel purchase.

6 Known as the Landing and Take Off cycle, includes approach & landing, take-off & climb, taxiing, ground holding and APU use.

7 Airports Council International (ACI) Europe is the European trade body for airports. ACI’s Airport Carbon Accreditation is an independent, voluntary programme which assesses and recognises participating airports’ efforts to manage and reduce their CO2 emissions. Level 3 Optimisation is the the highest level of performance achievable without offsetting emissions.

8 Emissions from refrigerants, fuel consumption in utilities and company owned/leased operational vehicles/equipment.

9 Emissions from electricity consumption, including Heathrow Express depot.

10 Emissions from aircraft in the Landing and Take Off cycle (as defined by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)), passenger and staff travel to and from the airport, third party operational vehicles and equipment, HAL employee business travel, waste management, water supply and treatment.

11 HAL controls CO2e performance at Heathrow by directly managing emissions within its operational and financial control. Includes emissions from electricity fuel consumption in utilities, HAL owned/ leased vehicles and refrigerants.

12 HAL guides CO2e performance at Heathrow by agreeing with airport companies and staff the policies, standards and operating procedures used to manage emissions within and close to the airport boundary. Includes emissions from airport staff travel, aircraft on the ground, third party operational vehicles, waste management and water supply and treatment.

13 HAL influences CO2e performance at and beyond Heathrow by engaging with airport stakeholders to develop and promote solutions to managing emissions. Includes emissions from passenger travel to and from the airport and aircraft taking-off and landing.

WASTE

1 The waste data included in our report relates to waste generated by Heathrow Airport Ltd’s activities and waste from tenants, retailers, contractors and others that use the Heathrow waste collection service. Our research suggests this equates to approximately 1/4 of the total waste generated by airport activities. The remaining waste is either generated off-airport, is construction/demolition waste which is reported separately, or it is otherwise managed outside of the Heathrow contract.

2 Waste to landfill increased between 2011 and 2013 due to a change in processing procedures for certain waste streams. Elected waste streams, that were previously being sent to incineration, are now being sorted to extract more recyclable waste, with the remaining waste either turned into refuse derived fuel, or sent to landfill. More recently, a waste stream that was previously landfilled is now recycled.

3 Does not include demolition or excavation waste. Refers to waste recycled and sent to recovery.

WATER AND BIODIVERSITY

1 Terminal 5 rainwater harvesting was not operational during 2012 and 2013 as upgrades to the water treatment system are being undertaken to improve the quality for grey water before use within the terminal.
