Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) has been chosen to receive the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Climate Leadership Award for Organizational Leadership.
This award recognizes organizations that have their own comprehensive greenhouse gas inventories, emission reduction goals, and extraordinary leadership in their internal response to climate change and engagement of their peers, partners and supply chain.
DFW is the only airport to be recognized by the EPA’s Climate Leadership Awards for two consecutive years.
Sean Donohue, CEO at DFW, commented, “Last year, DFW was honored to be the first airport recipient of the EPA award for Greenhouse Gas Management.
“This year’s recognition proves we are committed to responding to climate change and implementing the emissions reduction initiatives we’ve set in place. Our airport will continue to demonstrate global leadership in sustainability within the industry.”
The airport plans to continue its reduction initiatives by increasing renewable energy and alternative fuel use. This is hoped to be achieved by integrating best available energy-efficient technology into facilities, systems, processes and operations, and by expanding partnerships with airlines, regulatory agencies, academia, non-governmental organizations, business associations and other stakeholders.
