“Keeping it clean”: DFW’s sustainability playbook is an industry leader

Guided by the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, TIACA published the industry’s first air cargo sustainability roadmap. In October at the IATA World Cargo Symposium in Dublin, sustainability was one of the key topics on the agenda and was highlighted as a priority for the industry. The release of the TIACA sustainability roadmap aligned with the COP26 event, which DFW attended to reaffirm the airport’s commitment to sustainability and climate action. As the industry worldwide is targeting 2050 to achieve Net Zero, DFW Airport has its sights on transforming to a net zero operation by 2030.

DFW Airport was the first airport in North America and the largest airport in the world to achieve carbon neutral status. DFW received international recognition as the first airport to earn a United Nations Global Climate Action Award on Oct. 27, 2020. Every stakeholder in the supply chain is developing and executing on their sustainability playbook and DFW stands with each of you to contribute to this global effort to accelerate climate action by reducing emissions.

“These recognitions are the latest examples of DFW Airport’s commitment to serving our community and our world with a comprehensive, holistic approach to sustainability,” said Sean Donohue, CEO of DFW Airport. “We continue to look for innovative and meaningful ways to reduce the Airport’s carbon footprint with mindful, responsible practices and processes. We can and will do more, thanks to the focus and hard work of everyone at DFW Airport.”
