DFW gets EPA award for climate leadership

Dallas Fort Worth International Airport has received the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Climate Leadership Award for Greenhouse Gas Management, the airline said.

As part of the US EPA´s commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, the EPA´s Center for Corporate Climate Leadership co-sponsors the Climate Leadership Awards with two partners–Center for Climate and Energy Solutions and The Climate Registry. With these awards, the two co-sponsors strive to bring attention to leaders in the management and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions–both in internal operations and throughout the supply chain.

As one of three EPA award recipients for Excellence in Greenhouse Gas Management Goal Setting, DFW Airport is being recognized for publicly reporting and verifying organization-wide greenhouse gas inventories and publicly setting aggressive greenhouse gas emissions reduction goals. The EPA awarded DFW Airport, specifically, for the following accomplishment: setting an absolute target of an annual two percent reduction in its direct (Scope 1) and indirect (Scope 2) GHG emissions from 2010 to 2020. Also recognized in this category were IBM and MetLife, Inc.

Dallas Fort Worth International (DFW) Airport welcomes more than 64 million customers along their journey every year, elevating DFW to a status as one of the most frequently visited superhub airports in the world.
