EPA Assistant Regional Administrator Steve Tuber said,
Denver International Airport is not only one of the busiest aviation facilities in the world; it is one of the greenest. With a state-of-the-art Environmental Management System that covers everything from alternative-fuel vehicles to deicing fluid recycling, the airport is living up to its reputation as an industry leader and a community asset
The Airport is the nation’s first airport to be awarded membership in the Environmental Protection Agency’s Performance Track. It is a voluntary program for recognizing facilities that consistently exceed regulatory requirements and excel in protecting both human health and the environment.
To qualify for Performance Track, facilities must:
adopt and implement an Environmental Management System;
demonstrate specific past environmental achievements;
record sustained compliance with environmental requirements, and
commit to continued environmental improvement, public outreach, and performance reporting.
