Denver International Airport became the first airport in the nation to be awarded membership into the Environmental Protection Agency's Performance Track, a voluntary program that recognizes facilities that consistently exceed regulatory requirements and excel in protecting human health and the environment.

To qualify for the program, facilities must adopt and implement an environmental management system (EMS); demonstrate specific past environmental achievements; record sustained compliance with environmental requirements; and commit to continued environmental improvement, public outreach, and performance reporting.

Denver International Airport, owned and operated by the City of Denver, is the tenth Colorado facility to join the more than 400 Performance Track program members nationwide. The airport is the eleventh busiest airport in the world and, situated on 53 square miles, one of the largest.

Performance Track members receive incentives, such as public recognition and low priority for routine EPA inspections. For more information about the program, click here.
