All about EONS

One of the biggest buzzwords we’ve been hearing in recent years has been “sustainability”. As the 1990s helped everyone get a greener consciousness, business practices have moved towards a more sustainable operation model, realizing that taking care of the environment goes hand in hand with helping the bottom line.

The Airport Authority is no late-comer to this trend. In fact, I think we’re pretty pioneering in terms of extending the concept of sustainability to encompass more than just being green.

In February of this year, the Airport Authority Board adopted a Sustainability Policy based on a concept called EONS -— a recognition that what we do as an organization impacts many generations to come. Developed by a working group of the Airports Council International – North America (ACI-NA), EONS is an acronym (and businesses love those!). Each letter signifies one of the four elements of sustainability as it relates to airports and the aviation industry:

· Economic Viability

· Operational Excellence

· Natural Resource Conservation and Preservation

· Social Responsibility

I think EONS is yet another component of what makes us such a dynamic organization. It helps us all look in broader terms about what it really means to be sustainable.

Look for more posts from me on this topic, since it’s a subject near and dear to my own interests as a professional community planner for the Airport Authority!
