Our airport planning team have helped San Francisco International Airport to define and implement their Zero Net Energy plan. Achieving this kind of goal means shaping aviation development from the outset through masterplanning, including pathways to decarbonisation and reducing Scope 1 to 3 emissions. This means more efficient landside, terminal and airfield arrangements; electrification of the airside and landside; safeguarding for future sustainable energy and aviation fuels; mitigation of noise and local emissions; sustainable surface access; economic, employment and social value strategies; as well as climate change resilience and adaptation. 

Sustainability often means working smarter, optimising the reuse of existing infrastructure and giving robust planning advice which avoids a piecemeal approach to short-lived infrastructure.
