Atlanta's airport is participating in an initiative that aims to reduce energy and water consumption by at least 20 percent by 2020.
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport on Tuesday announced that it is joining the Atlanta Better Buildings Challenge.
Each participant in the initiative has to complete an energy and water assessment. The assessment team then provides the facility with an analysis of its energy and water conservation options and makes recommendations.
The Atlanta Better Buildings Challenge aims to bring together the public and private sectors implement substantive building upgrades for water and energy conservation. Atlanta joins Denver, Washington, Seattle, Los Angeles and Sacramento, Calif., in the environmental initiative.
