Earth Day every day

Happy Earth Day! I hope everyone takes the time today to think about taking care of our planet’s resources and preserving them for future generations.

I’m glad that, here at San Diego International Airport, there are numerous efforts going on to make sure we are good stewards of our natural resources and the environment. We have an award-winning recycling program, a diligent Environmental Affairs Department, a celebrated California Least Tern (pictured) protection program, and a new Sustainability Policy approved by the Airport Authority Board in January – just to name a few of them!

If you’re not familiar with the term sustainability, I think you’re going to be hearing a lot more about it! It’s a worldwide initiative that centers on people and businesses making prudent decisions to make their resources last longer. You can read more about the term and its origins here.

The Airport Authority’s Sustainability Policy focuses on four elements:
– Economic Viability
– Operational Excellence
– Natural Resource Preservation and Conservation
– Social Responsibility

Those sound like very worthwhile and sensible principles to me! We’re fortunate to work for an organization that places value on being socially responsible. And, as Goodwill Ambassadors, we should be proud to talk to people in our community about the role the airport is playing as a responsible guardian of the region’s resources.

Airport Authority employees will have a chance to become more familiar with these initiatives at the upcoming employee Division Open House in June. This year’s theme is – you guessed it – Sustainability! So, keep recycling, keep thinking green and keep alert for ways that you can play an important role in the airport’s sustainability initiatives.

With the help of all employees, I bet we can find ways to make every day Earth Day around here!

  1. Hey Mary, Thanks for the information on the Authority’s Sustainability Policy because I like being a part of a company that puts their customer 1st while being good stewards of our natural resources, the environment and cares that their employees have knowledge of their company operations.

  2. Mary, I think you and the other bloggers are doing a fantastic job, keeping us posted on the goings on here at the airport and around San Diego. Keep up the good work.
