Awardees are honoured for exemplary corporate, organisational and individual leadership in reducing carbon pollution and addressing climate change.

The 2020 Climate Leadership Award for Excellence in Greenhouse Gas Management was awarded to the Airport Authority for the following efforts: setting a goal of reducing direct and indirect emissions by 80% from 2015 to 2035; achieving a 44% decrease in direct and indirect emissions by 2018; and developing strategies to reduce emissions from rideshare fleets by using cleaner fuels, introducing cars with a higher mpg rating, and utilizing more carpooling/ridesharing.

The Airport Authority was also honoured for replacing individual rental car company shuttles with Authority-owned rental car shuttles, reducing both emissions and the number of vehicle trips; investing in renewable energy by installing 5.5 MW of on-site solar PV panels at the airport, meeting 15% of electricity demand and planning a 2-MW battery storage system for 2020; and committing to converting approximately 80% of ground-support equipment to alternative fuels by 2024, as well as supplying adequate EV charging facilities.
