Finnair Adds Web Tool to Calculate Business Travel Carbon Footprint
from Environmental Leader
As companies begin to tabulate the environmental impact of their business travel, a European airline has added an online tool to help employees calculate their own personal carbon footprint. Finnair designed the tool for companies that purchase tickets on long routes, such as between Europe and Asia. Finnair has been updating its fleet to lower-emission planes, and it offers more direct routes between Europe and Asia, with planes carrying lighter fuel loads. More

AAAE invites you to be a part of the 2009 AAAE Airports Energy Efficiency Forum. Based in last year’s success, AAAE is putting together the 2nd Annual Airports Energy Efficiency Conference, to take place in Seattle, WA on November 16-18, 2009. This year’s forum promises to be even bigger and better than 2008's!
Helping airports figure out how to employ the latest strategies and best practices to minimize/eliminate energy waste and optimize operations is the number one goal for this conference. “Going green” isn’t just a buzzword; it can also save you money and resources.
This forum will address basic ways that airports can save up to 30% with minimum investments: increase efficiency through the use of low-cost technology and equipment, improve facility design and efficiency, improve energy-related operations and maintenance, recommission facilities and controls for optimum comfort and energy use.
