DRG3 Helps Dayton International Airport "Go Green"

Watch the Video

Dayton International Airport is "going green" beginning May 1, 2012.

 

The Green Sustainability Program will focus on reducing solid waste, recycling, energy and water conservation. The airport's goal is to prevent pollution and practice "Green Business Awareness."

The airport is installing motion-activated light switches to reduce energy consumption, starting a "just-in-time" purchasing system, and purchasing recycled materials.  The airport wants to use alternative fuels and hybrid technology in its fleet.  Airport landscaping will feature drought-resistant plants and vegetation. Airport employees will be educated on ways they can reduce, reuse, and recycle.

The new program follows the airport’s recognition as a Dayton Regional Green 3 "Certified Green Business" with a "Blue Certification" designation.

"We're very proud of our certified Green Business status and are eager to carry the torch for sustainable business practices in the Southwest Ohio region, said Director of Aviation, Terrence Slaybaugh.

"The Green Sustainability Program and its emphasis on the areas we can improve is part of our commitment to that end and we are excited about the impact it will make."
