Tampa International Airport – Leader in Sustainability & Climate Action
Our Sustainability vision is to be world class leaders in promoting the prosperity for the Tampa Bay region through efficient, responsible growth, while cherishing the natural beauty and quality of life in our community.
In 2013, Tampa International Airport (TPA) took advantage of an FAA grant to develop a Sustainable Management Plan (SMP). With public and stakeholder input TPA developed an SMP that would set the pace for the airport to be a leader in sustainability. Since that time, TPA has continuously worked on a variety of sustainability initiatives identified in the SMP related to People, Planet and Prosperity. These efforts have resulted in significant reductions in water and electricity usage, and waste reduction. Project management plans for every major airport capital project have a checklist for sustainability opportunities which has enabled innovative sustainability solutions for things like LED lighting, water saving restroom fixtures, construction material recycling and energy management.
In 2017, TPA became one (all 4 system airports) of 47 airports in North America, and the only in Florida, to become part of the Airports Council International Airport Carbon Accreditation Program. Through this program participating airports demonstrate their commitment to carbon reduction. TPA is leading the way by having all 4 of its system airports in the program and making strides in carbon reduction initiatives.
In 2019, a comprehensive review of the SMP and a Climate Change Resiliency and Initial Action Plan was completed by TPA. As we continue our leadership role in sustainability and resiliency we look to other grant funding opportunities and partnerships with local utilities and airport business partners to make a significant difference in improving the environment in Tampa Bay and Florida.
In 2022, TPA will formerly update the SMP and develop a Resiliency Action Plan. The SMP update will guide the next four to five years of sustainability management at the airport. It will include newly articulated vision/mission, modified goals/targets, enhanced assessment of cost and benefits of sustainability commitments, new/updated tools and/or processes for management, including methods for integration into existing airport operations processes (e.g. master, strategic and capital plans, etc.), procurement, project management, measurement and verification, reporting and communications.
The Resiliency Action Plan will update the Hurricane Surge Analysis, evaluate terminal area storm water infrastructure, assess electrical infrastructure, research heat stress and review operational resiliency.
Reporting to the Vice President of Planning and Development, the Sustainability and Resilience Program Director is responsible for oversight, execution, monitoring, and reporting for the Authority's Sustainability and Resilience initiatives. This position fosters and facilitates a culture of sustainability and resilience throughout the Authority while serving as the lead representative for sustainability and resilience programs and initiatives.
