Impact of sustainability reporting on insurance rates and access to capital

Examination of airports that are tracking and reporting sustainability metrics and whether their insurance rates, insurance payouts, or options for access to capital are different from those of airports that do not track and report these metrics

Background (Describe the current situation or problem in the industry, and how your idea would address it.)

In May 2018, ACRP hosted an Insight Event titled "Economic and Social Sustainability at Airports." The impetus for this topic was the acknowledgement that airports understand and are actively working towards solutions focused on the environmental sphere of sustainability, but could benefit from enhanced support in understanding and overcoming challenges related to the economic and social sides of sustainability. This idea was an outcome of this insight event.

Objective (What is the desired product or result that will help the airport industry?)

Synthesis of examples of how reporting sustainability metrics affects insurance rates, insurance payouts, and access to capital.
