Environmental stewardship is a hallmark of operations at San Diego International Airport (SDIA), which is operated by the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority. In fact, the Airport Authority instituted one of the first sustainability policies for a major airport in the U.S. This formalized the Airport Authority’s commitment to an environmentally sustainable future for the airport and the region.

The Airport Authority is committed to building and operating sustainably, and strives to protect the wide variety of natural resources that exist at SDIA’s location.

The Environmental Affairs Department manages all environmental-related programs, including airport planning and environmental review, regulatory compliance, water and air quality, site remediation, hazardous material handling and natural resources protection. The department interfaces with other Airport Authority departments to assess potential environmental impacts of all proposed projects. The department is also responsible for long-range airport facility planning, including the San Diego International Airport Master Plan.

For more information, please contact the department directly at environmental@san.org.

As part of its ongoing commitment to sustainability, the Airport Authority publishes an annual Sustainability Report for San Diego International Airport. In 2012, SDIA became the first airport in the U.S.A. to issue an annual sustainability report based on the internationally recognized criteria of the Global Reporting Initiative. The report is accessible online at sustain.san.org.
