Jackson, Wyoming – Jackson Hole Airport Board and staff released a greenhouse gas emissions inventory report at the May Airport Board meeting. The Airport partnered with Mead & Hunt to study and inventory 2017 CO2 emissions associated with airport activity and operations at Jackson Hole Airport. This report was produced to align with the Town of Jackson’s emissions inventory baseline study currently in progress.
During Mead & Hunt’s presentation at the board meeting, they commended the Airport Board and staff for their work over the last several years to further reduce the Airport’s impact on the environment. The report indicated that only 1.4% of CO2 emissions were from the Airport directly, while the remaining emissions where the result of aircraft operations and ground transportation.
“We are proud that the emissions report showed our commitment and efforts over the years to reduce our carbon footprint,” says Jackson Hole Airport Director Jim Elwood. “Our board and staff continue to work to reduce our Airport’s impact on our ecosystem, while operating a safe and customer focused facility. By continuing to work to reduce carbon emissions and investing in green initiatives, we continue to lay the groundwork to be a model for airports to follow and to be a leader in sustainability.”
