Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Thursday, 29 January 2009

Denver International Airport is currently hosting the kick-off meeting of 10 international airports and the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) to establish sustainability guidelines for the aviation industry being held Jan. 28-29, 2009.

DIAs Environmental Programs director, Janell Barrilleaux, together with environmental program managers from the 9 other international airports, are participating in the working group to develop airport-specific sustainability metrics and standardize reporting for airports under GRI guidelines.

DIA and its international airport partners have turned to the GRI as the creator of one of the most widely used frameworks for sustainability reporting. Hundreds of companies in all sectors already use GRIs main G3 Guidelines for their reporting.

The 10 participating airports at the Denver meeting include: Athens (Greece; Cancun (Mexico); German airports Frankfurt and Munich; Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia); US airports Denver, Colorado, Portland, Oregon, and San Diego, California; Toronto (Canada) and Zurich (Switzerland).

Over the next two years, GRI will work together with airports and their stakeholders (employees, investors, customers, communities, non-governmental agencies and others) to create a customized set of reporting indicators for airports.
