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

59 This appendix provides resources and tools for airport decision-makers involved in select- ing, applying, and communicating sustainability approaches and measures as part of capacity- enhancing projects. Because every project is different and every airport may require different guidance, the focus of the chapter is on resources and tools that can be applied across a variety of circumstances and that fit a variety of airport needs. Table 2 provides descriptions of each resource and tool.

TRB's Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Synthesis 93: Sustainability's Role in Enhancing Airport Capacity compiles information and examples that successfully demonstrate the value of building sustainability concepts into capacity-enhancing projects. The report describes additional resources and tools that provide guidance on how to select, apply, and communicate sustainability measures. The report explores how sustainability efforts often build on themselves; how lessons learned from one initiative are carried through to the next; and how this progressive learning process can enhance sustainability’s role in capacity-enhancing projects over time.

Appendix E, available separately online, is intended for an airport leadership audience and focuses on the benefits of incorporating sustainability into capacity-enhancing projects.
