Summary and Info
This report is a handbook and decision support tool that assists airport operators in identifying, evaluating, prioritizing, and implementing practical, low-cost strategies to reduce and manage greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The handbook and AirportGEAR, the interactive decision support tool developed in the research as a companion to the handbook, consider a range of strategies that can be implemented by all types of airports—regardless of size, geography, or resources—either directly or in partnership with airport stakeholders, including airlines, airport tenants, and host communities. A user's manual to guide the user through the decision support tool is also included. In addition, fact sheets, which are the foundation and data source for the tool and provide pertinent information to implement the reduction strategies, and a presentation, which provides awareness training materials that can be used by airports to educate and inform stakeholders, were developed.
