JACKSON HOLE, WYO – The Jackson Hole Airport will take the lead at tomorrow’s June Sustainability Series hosted by Yellowstone-Teton Clean Cities (YTCC) and Energy Conservation Works (ECW). Airport Director Jim Elwood will present on why sustainable practices matter for the airport and, ultimately, for Teton County.
JH Airport Board and administration have been community leaders in taking an active and engaged focus on enhancing the quality of their sustainable programs and capital projects in recent years.
“We are thrilled to be presenting at the Sustainability Series and having the opportunity to feature some exciting capital improvements and new programs we are rolling out this year,” Elwood said. “Continuing to partner with local environmental organizations, engaging the public, and investing in capital improvements are essential to our board’s goals and objectives to be a good neighbor and steward of this land.”
From switching to 100% green power through ECW, to purchasing alternative fuel vehicles for Airport Operations partially through the support of a rebate from YTCC; the Airport Board continues to focus on investing in quality, sustainable capital improvements as well as being a leader on how smaller airports throughout the country can make a significant difference on local ecosystems.
YTCC executive director Alicia Cox commented, “Jackson Hole Airport is a leader in the community and region for their sustainability programs. We are pleased to showcase their initiatives and hope other organizations and businesses will replicate their use of nonprofit sustainability resources.”
The Yellowstone-Teton Clean Cities’ Sustainability Series began in 2012 with the realization that there were numerous overlapping outreach events between like-minded organizations. This is when Yellowstone-Teton Clean Cities began to partner with Energy Conservation Works and Integrated Solid Waste and Recycling to put on a monthly series, highlighting sustainability and local efforts.
The June event takes place Thursday, June 27, from noon – 1:00pm at Teton County Library’s Ordway Auditorium.
