Airport Best Practices in Sustainability

By understanding what other airports are doing in the very wide subject area of sustainability, it may spur airports to try different means of conserving energy, recycling materials, or otherwise improving its sustainability practices. By looking not only at the practices, but the results, the challenges to implementation, and the costs of implementation, airports will be provided with guidance to improve their practices in this key area.

Many airports have instituted a wide variety of sustainability practices, while others struggle to simply implement an effective recycling program, or, worse yet, do not take any actions to improve their sustainability. Through this synthesis, we will make the best ideas and cutting-edge practices available to all airports.
