2014 Environmental Achievement Awards Contest Now Open, Including New Individual Award Category!

It’s that time again!  We are now accepting submissions for the 2014 ACI-NA Environmental Achievement Awards in the categories of: Environmental Management, Mitigation, Outreach, Education and Community Involvement, and Special/Innovative Projects.  The deadline for submission is Thursday, May 1st, 2014.   For submission instructions, award criteria and entry form please click on the links below. 

The Environmental Achievement Awards are a great way to showcase your airport’s environmental and sustainability projects, initiatives and successes.  Winners will be invited to present the details of their project to the Environmental Affairs Committee in a special session during the 2014 ACI-NA Annual Conference and Exhibition in Atlanta, Georgia, from September 7th – 10th, 2014.  

For the first time this year, in addition to the four categories of awards for airport sponsors, the Committee is launching a new award to recognize an individual for outstanding contributions to the ACI-NA Environmental Affairs Committee.  More details on the new “Peer Recognition for Outstanding Individual Contribution and Leadership” award and nomination instructions can be found below.

Since 1997, ACI-NA has granted awards to recognize its airport members that strive to protect and preserve the environment through their programs, initiatives and projects. Established by the Environmental Affairs Committee, the annual awards acknowledge the hard work and achievements of ACI-NA members by promoting awareness more broadly within the airport community, the general public and regulators of the many notable and innovative efforts undertaken by environmental professionals at airports. Environmental and planning staffs at our airports deserve recognition for their efforts in developing and implementing programs that protect the environment while keeping their airport's projects on schedule, minimizing community and regulatory controversy and using creative means of maximizing overall cost-benefit.
