Air Emissions Management



Recent successes include significant reductions in direct and indirect greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

The Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP) will result in substantial air quality benefits.

LAWA has also established a range of emissions reduction programs, which include:

  • Adopting an Electric Vehicle Purchasing Policy to increase the number of electric vehicles to the LAWA fleet
  • Increasing the number of electric vehicle chargers for passengers and employees
  • Implementing Smart Parking at LAX
  • Expanding alternative commuting options for employees
  • Requiring heavy-duty vehicles operating at LAX to be alternative fuel vehicles
  • Updating the Ground Support Equipment Emissions Policy to further reduce GSE emissions
  • Supporting the use of Sustainable Aviation Fuel
  • Joining the Good Traveler Program, a program that allows travelers to purchase carbon offsets for their flights

Airport Carbon Accreditation

In 2016, LAX became one of only 14 U.S. airports to be accredited through the Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) Program. VNY received accreditation the following year. The ACA program recognizes airports worldwide that have committed to managing their carbon footprint through measurement, reduction, and a goal of carbon neutrality. LAX has been accredited at Level 3-Optimization since 2017 and VNY since 2019.
