The San Diego County Regional Airport Authority, manager and operator of San Diego International Airport, has launched its first comprehensive sustainability report. The report complies with the rigorous international standards of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), and San Diego International Airport is the first airport in the country to issue such a report.
In addition to the more traditional environmental topics, the sustainability report covers issues that relate to the community and sustainable business practices—everything from wildlife management to customer service initiatives.
San Diego International Airport isn’t new to environmental pioneering: It was one of the first airports in the country to develop a sustainability policy, pledging to be a role model for sustainability in the industry. As a direct expression of that commitment, Airport Authority staff became involved in developing the industry reporting guidelines for GRI.
The annual report can be found at http://sustain.san.org. While it is designed to be an online report, it is also available as a downloadable PDF. The Airport Authority will continue to report on an annual basis; moving forward, additional topics and performance indicators will be reported.
