Sustainable Recovery Best Practice
As the industry seeks to “build back better,” airports have been recognizing the advantages of a sustainability-centric recovery strategy. While health and evolving passenger expectations remain central to airports and the industry’s sustained recovery, climate change and other related externalities remain the major risk to the sector.
The Sustainable Recovery Best Practice highlights the advantages of incorporating sustainability in recovery plans, including access to funding, through government relief packages and sustainability-linked bonds, as well as further developing a more balanced business model that incorporates all social, environmental, and economic sustainability.
The publication provides a table of best practices and examples of action under the three pillars of sustainability and governance, which airports worldwide should consider while developing their own sustainable recovery plans. A step-by-step approach to building such plan is also included.
