ACI-NA recognizes environmental project
Hartsfield-Jackson received an honorable mention in the Airports Council International–North America (ACI-NA) 2012 Environmental Achievement Awards, which recognize airport projects based on environmental benefit, innovative approach, effective implementation, applicability and cost-effectiveness.
Hartsfield-Jackson’s honorable mention came in the Innovative/Special Projects category; the winning project was a redevelopment of a site that formerly housed a Ford plant.
“The award-winning project was a collaboration among the Airport and several partners, including Ford Motor Co. and Jacoby Development, that transformed a 122-acre, contaminated site into the foundation for an aerotropolis,” said Aviation General Manager Louis Miller. “Among other plans for this site, Porsche will build its North American headquarters and test track there.”
Hartsfield-Jackson and other winning airports will be recognized at the ACI-NA and ACI World Annual Conference on September 12.
