MONTREAL, QUEBEC–(Marketwire – Oct. 12, 2010) – Aéroports de Montréal (ADM) is pleased to reiterate its commitment to participating in the Montréal community’s strategic sustainable development plan.
Concerned about protecting the environment and determined to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, ADM is joining in the 2010–2015 partners’ challenge, which consists of carrying out at least 10 actions in five priority areas. ADM has committed to 17 actions, including:
reducing its dependence on the automobile and improving the environmental performance of its fleet of conventional vehicles;
reducing GHG emissions produced by its existing and new buildings;
implementing reduction-at-source measures;
holding eco-responsible events;
stimulating demand for green technologies, products and services.
To successfully tackle these challenges, ADM is able to rely on many initiatives introduced in recent years, for example using lower-consumption equipment such as LED lamps to light runways and taxiways, converting vehicles to burn less-polluting fuels such as propane, and activating its new thermal power plant, which is a model of energy efficiency.
ADM is the local airport authority responsible for the management, operation and development of Montréal–Trudeau and Montréal–Mirabel international airports since 1992. The Corporation employs some 600 people at both airports and at head office. ADM has been certified ISO 14001 since 2000, and BOMA BESt certified since 2008.
