Environmental pressure on the aviation industry worldwide requires continual reassessment of the social and legal obligations of airport authorities. This book examines these obligations and, using examples from airports in Europe, America and Australia identifies key issues and the measures taken to address them.
The book contains the papers from a conference held in 1995 by leading experts in environmental management from the aviation industry. The topics examined include:
air quality monitoring
contamination and protection of ground and surface waters
the environment, legal and health impacts of the industry, on both individuals and communities
Continuous environmental protection and sustainable development for the industry require effective management programmes. The authors provide examples of programmes from several international airports which have proved to be effective in reducing environmental liabilities and in promoting the social acceptability of airport operations.
For airport managers and environmental consultants alike, this book provides a valuable source of reference on current best practice in sustaining effective environmental management within the developing aviation industry.
