AECOM to develop environmental master plan for Toronto Pearson

Toronto Pearson International Airport is the largest airport in Canada by pre-pandemic total passenger traffic.

Infrastructure consulting firm AECOM is set to support the development of a long-term environmental master plan for Toronto Pearson International Airport in Ontario, Canada.

The company was selected by the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) for the project.

The master plan will be aligned with GTAA’s environmental policy, which focuses on the six key areas of climate change, carbon neutrality and emissions, water management, natural environment, strategic energy use, and waste management.

According to the agreement, AECOM will develop strategic plans for each focus area and recommend capital projects as well as operational changes to meet environmental goals.

The scope of work will include analysis of current strategies; baseline assessments for the focus areas; supervision of peer review; and identification of priority areas and related goals.

The company will also conduct a cost/benefit analysis for programmes and targets.

AECOM global environment business chief executive Frank Sweet said: “GTAA is at the forefront of aviation sustainability, and we are honoured to be part of its next chapter as it continues to demonstrate leadership in environmental policies and strategies.

“AECOM’s global team of subject matter experts share GTAA’s commitment to environmental stewardship, with extensive experience supporting the sustainability efforts of internationally recognised airports.”

Toronto Pearson International Airport is the largest airport in Canada by pre-pandemic total passenger traffic. The airport is managed and operated by GTAA.

Recently, NAV CANADA deployed a new air traffic control technology, called Intelligent Approach, at Toronto Pearson. The technology is intended to optimise time spacing between aircraft arrivals.
