Dallas Fort Worth International Airport Earns 2017 Climate Leadership Award


The EPA Center for Corporate Climate Leadership publicly recognized Dall Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport for their leadership in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and climate action during the awards dinner, held as part of the Climate Leadership Conference, held in Chicago, Illinois, from March 1 – 3, 2017.

Dallas Fort Worth International Airport was recognized for integrated cleaner vehicles into its fleet. DFW utilizes CNG in its bus fleet operations, with multiple fueling stations for airport fleets and the surrounding community. DFW was previously recognized with a Climate Leadership Award for Excellence in Greenhouse Gas Management (Goal Setting Certificate) in 2016.

EPA’s Climate Protection Partnerships Division is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) through cost-effective partnerships across the U.S. economy. In February 2012, the first-ever awards were presented to one individual and 20 organizations from across the U.S. who are leading the way in the management and reduction of GHG emissions—both in internal operations and throughout the supply chain. Now in its sixth year, the program has honored more than 100 recipients; the awards continue to highlight leadership in addressing climate change by reducing carbon pollution and implementing adaptation planning initiatives.
