Because it is UNCORRECTED material, please consider the following text as a useful but insufficient proxy for the authoritative book pages.

23 The facilities identified for case study as part of this research represent documented (or documentable) decision-making and evaluation processes, along with quantified, measur- able, or anticipated results/benefits of an environmental, financial, and/or social nature. All outcomes were considered to be valuable information to other airports, regardless of whether they were desired, anticipated, unexpected, successful, or unsuccessful. The fact that a facility incorporated a sustainable practice and then has results and “lessons learned” to share with others has deemed it favorable for consideration as a case study. Airports selected for case study include domestic and international, large and mid-size com- mercial service airports, and general aviation airports. Non-airport facilities include those with initiatives directly applicable to airports. Full case study results can be accessed through the accompanying ASAT. 6.1 List of Facilities The following is an alphabetical list of facilities selected for case study: Stockholm Arlanda Airport (ARN) Aspen/Pitkin County Airport (ASE) Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA) Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) Denver International Airport (DEN) Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport (ITH) Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) Oakland International Airport (OAK) Paulding Northwest Airport (PUJ) Portland International Jetport (PWM) Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) San Francisco International Airport (SFO) Weber Academic Center at Judson University (WAC) Harold Washington Social Security Building (WHS) Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) 6.2 List of Initiatives The sustainable initiatives in place at the airports and other facilities selected for case study cover a broad spectrum of practices.

TRB’s Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Report 80: Guidebook for Incorporating Sustainability into Traditional Airport Projects describes sustainability and its potential benefits, and identifies different applications of sustainable initiatives in traditional airport construction and everyday maintenance projects.

The printed version of the report includes a CD-ROM that includes an airport sustainability assessment tool (ASAT) that complements the guidebook and may be used to assist in identifying sustainability initiatives that might be most applicable to an airport project. Through case studies, the tool also allows users to obtain more information about specific strategies and learn about sustainability initiatives that have been implemented in other airports. The case studies are also available for download in PDF format.

The CD-ROM is also available for download from TRB’s website in two formats, either as an Excel file or an ISO image.

Download the Excel file here.

Links to the ISO image and instructions for burning a CD-ROM from an ISO image are provided below.
