Synthesis of Information Related to Airport Practices. Topic S02-17. Sustainability’s Role in Enhancing Airport Capacity

TRB's Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) has released a pre-publication, non-edited version of Synthesis 93: Sustainability's Role in Enhancing Airport Capacity. This report compiles information and examples that successfully demonstrate the value of building sustainability concepts into capacity-enhancing projects and describes additional resources and tools that provide guidance on how to select, apply, and communicate sustainability measures. The report highlights that sustainability efforts often build on themselves; lessons learned from one initiative are carried through to the next, and this progressive learning process can enhance sustainability’s role in capacity-enhancing projects over time.
