MTU Maintenance and World Duty Free Take Home This Year’s Clear Skies Award

Each year, YVR recognizes tenants that demonstrate an outstanding commitment, innovation and enthusiasm to improving the environment on Sea Island. Since 2011, businesses on Sea Island have been recognized with the Clear Skies Award for everything from reducing gas emissions to improving waste diversion and energy efficiency.


We are pleased to announce that MTU Maintenance and World Duty Free have received this year's Clear Skies Award in the airside/groundside and in-terminal categories, respectively.


MTU Maintenance was recognized for their expanded recycling program, installation of energy-efficient LED lighting, participation in Climate Smart training and use of water-efficient rinse heads for aircraft cleaning. World Duty Free received this year’s award thanks to their improved paper and single-use item recycling, use of LED lights and their active employee green committee who participate annually in YVR’s Climate Smart training program. Congratulations MTU Maintenance and World Duty Free!
