Environmental Management at YVR
Vancouver Airport Authority is committed to the vision of a sustainable airport for the future of British Columbia. We strive to be a leader in the aviation industry by implementing innovative environmental, social, and economic programs.
Sustainability at YVR is more than just meeting environmental standards. For us, sustainability means operating our airport in a way that improves the quality of life of our employees and passengers while integrating and co-existing with our natural environment. Our vision of a sustainable airport has led us to a variety of programs; from noise management to energy efficiency, waste reduction to wellness programs, carbon reduction to corporate giving, we are determined to lead the way to a sustainable future that includes aviation.
We do more than meet the environmental status quo. Federal regulations and standards provide the basis for our environmental performance, but we also create our own standards to exceed what’s required.
