Update ACRP Report 43: Improving Environmental Performance at Small Airports

ACRP Report 43: Guidebook of Practices for Improving Environmental Performance at Small Airports has been a valuable resource for small airports, which often face limited resources and expertise. The guidebook outlines environmental regulations and requirements, provides guidelines on developing an effective environmental program at small airports to promote environmental stewardship, and identifies specific activities to ensure the program’s success. Since its publication in 2011, the industry has seen significant regulatory changes, technological advancements, changes to industry practice, and a growing desire to ensure environmental equity. In addition, with recent changes in how end users access and consume information, the current format of some of the material (e.g., CD-ROM) is no longer viable. Research is needed to update the information and guidelines in ACRP Report 43 to reflect the latest developments and practice as well as to improve accessibility and usability. The objective of this research is to update ACRP Report 43: Guidebook of Practices for Improving Environmental Performance at Small Airports, including its guidelines, list of environmental stewardship practices, and other supporting material, to reflect the latest developments in regulations, technology, and practice. The update should also improve the accessibility and usability of the report and supporting material.
