Airport teams with Clean Air Campaign

As part of the Airport’s ongoing commitment to environmental responsibility, Hartsfield-Jackson has teamed with the Clean Air Campaign to help more employees explore commute alternatives, such as teleworking and carpooling.

Beth Ament, employer program manager for the Clean Air Campaign, helped coordinate an employee survey about commuting and got feedback from Airport employees at the Earth Day-themed Inspire to Change Expo on April 20. She is working with Airport leaders to inform employees of some of their options and to get them enrolled in the programs.

Employees come through with shoes

Hartsfield-Jackson and Standard Parking employees donated more than 800 pairs of usable shoes toward the Soul Project, which sends walking shoes to Africa.

“We are so grateful for this tremendous response from employees,” said Katie Stanciel, Parking manager, who coordinated the Airport shoe drive. “These shoes will be used by people who often walk several miles a day over rocky terrain.”
