Austin is one of the most livable cities in the country and we want to keep it that way. From its beginning, Austin-Bergstrom International Airport has worked to reduce its impact on the environment by recycling, using alternative fuels, reducing electric and water consumption, and building with recycled materials.
We are proud to call Austin home, and we strive to balance economic, environmental, aviation, and quality of life concerns that affect all of us.
Our shuttle bus fleet uses renewable natural gas from Clean Energy Fuels. Through this RNG program we were able to share extra credits with several other onsite stakeholders effectively reducing their carbon footprints by more than 60%
In 2021 and 2022, AUS was recognized as one of the few airports in North America to reach carbon neutrality, with a Level 3+ Accreditation by Airports Council International – North America’s Airport Carbon Accreditation Program. This makes AUS the first and only medium-sized airport in North America to achieve carbon neutrality.
