At Hamilton International, the lens of sustainability focuses attention on opportunities for continuous improvement of our environmental stewardship, social engagement with stakeholders and contribution to the regional economy. Each sustainability initiative enhances operational performance and/or supports persistent shareholder value by focusing on supporting economic development, enhancing the capabilities of staff and community or, minimizing operational impacts on the environment.
As we are in the preliminary stages of implementing a Sustainability Management Plan (SMP), we envision:
- Developing a system for evaluating project and program proposals
- Integrating SMP updates into our annual business planning cycle
- Reporting on, and publicly sharing sustainability results
- Engaging the entire airport community in sustainable practices
