DFW Airport will continue to show global leadership in sustainability in the aviation industry.

Dallas Fort Worth International Airport has received the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Climate Leadership Award for Organizational Leadership. It’s the only airport to be recognized two consecutive years by the EPA in the Climate Leadership Awards program’s six-year history.

The Organizational Leadership Award recognizes organizations that not only have their own comprehensive greenhouse gas inventories and aggressive emissions reduction goals, but also show extraordinary leadership in climate change and engagement of peers, partners and supply chain.

DFW Airport plans to continue its reduction initiatives by increasing renewable energy and alternative fuel use; integrating best available energy-efficient technology into facilities, systems, processes and operations; and expanding partnerships with airlines, regulatory agencies, academia, nongovernmental organizations, business associations and other stakeholders to develop effective and sustainable solutions to improve air quality and reduce aviation’s impact on climate change.
