Sustainability Engagement Calendar

This initiative is an innovative communications strategy aimed at raising awareness, building organizational excitement, and increasing visibility around sustainability. Each month of the calendar highlights a different sustainability topic, such as recycling, community well-being, energy, water use, and climate adaptation. The calendar highlights sustainability successes and provides information on sustainability-related activities, project highlights, and ways to improve personal sustainability. This initiative communicates an airport's commitment to improving sustainability. Calendars can be distributed to employees, tenants, other agencies, and/or the wider public. Airports can also promote monthly events related to each sustainability topic to increase visibility and engagement.
