2013 Environmental Acheivement Awards Now Open!

It's that time again! We are now accepting submissions for the 2013 ACI-NA Environmental Achievement Awards! The deadline for submission is Tuesday, July 2, 2013.  For submission instructions and entry form, please click the link below.

This year, in addition to receiving recognition from industry peers, the award winners will be invited to present their projects to the Environmental Affairs Committee in a special session during the Pre-conference Seminar (September 21-22), prior to the 2013 Annual Conference and Exhibition in San Jose, California.

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.
