January 9, 2020 – Cadmus authored a major new guidebook that provides a detailed step-by-step process for achieving zero- or low- emission airports. Interest in lowering airport emissions is at an all-time high and airports worldwide are setting aggressive zero- or low-emissions targets. To meet these targets, airports are deploying new strategies, adopting innovative financing mechanisms, and harnessing the collective influence of voluntary emissions and reporting programs. In tandem, new and affordable zero- or low-emissions technologies are rapidly becoming available at airports. This guidebook, led by Cadmus’ Sustainable Transportation Practice, is the first guidebook focused solely on supporting airport staff in achieving deep emission reductions.
Key features of the guidebook include:
• Basic concepts and knowledge to begin the roadmapping process
• Effective engagement strategies to encourage buy-in from internal and external stakeholders
• Steps for setting goals, baselines, and targets
• How to prioritize emissions reduction strategies
• Funding opportunities and mechanisms
• Key steps for monitoring, outreach, and reporting
Cadmus led a team that included Rocky Mountain Institute, HMMH, Changing Climate Consultants, and the Volpe Transportation Center. This project was conducted on behalf of the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP), a program managed by the Transportation Research Board (TRB) of the National Academies and sponsored by the Federal Aviation Administration.
