Carbon-cutting efforts at Port Authority airports awarded new accreditation
June 20, 2019
The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey airports generated 111,937 tons of carbon dioxide in 2016, which was an 11% drop compared to 2014.
These efforts secured a successful renewal & upgrade to Level 3 Optimisation of Airport Carbon Accreditation of all 5 of their airports. This means they are only one step short of carbon neutrality.
A special shoutout to John F. Kennedy International Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport, LaGuardia Airport, Teterboro Airport, Stewart International Airport.
