A Lighter Footprint

United Airlines’ environmentally friendly efforts lessen the impact on local U.S. communities.

United Airlines is lightening its footprint at airports across the United States. The airline takes you places in comfort and style, while also maintaining a clear vision toward sustainability. United is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent by 2050, and the airline works toward its goal in a number of different ways at several U.S. gateways.

Los Angeles International Airport
A biofuels program at LAX is at the heart of United’s sustainability pledge. The airline invested heavily in biofuels, made from renewable resources like agricultural waste or trash, and they lead the pack, operating the first U.S. commercial flight powered by renewable biofuel in 2011. It’s also the first airline to continuously use biofuel for regularly scheduled flights from Los Angeles, since 2016.

San Francisco International Airport
Fly from one of the nation’s greenest airports with United Airlines, operating from Terminal 3 at SFO, a LEED Gold-certified terminal with solar panels and terrazzo tile made from recycled glass. Designed with sustainability in mind, the natural light and sweeping views add an open, airy and light feel to the airport experience.

Chicago O’Hare International Airport
United’s biofuel partner, Fulcrum BioEnergy, announced plans to begin construction on a Chicago-area biofuels plant in 2020. Nearly 33 million gallons, about half of which is jet fuel, will be produced annually, allowing United to not only reduce its carbon footprint, but also divert waste from landfills and create 160 full-time and 900 construction jobs in the Chicago region.

Denver International Airport
United Airlines and Certifiably Green Denver teamed to improve both DEN United Club locations, and each earned the Certificate of Environmental Excellence. The comfort and amenities travelers have come to expect from United Clubs remains the same, but with the added bonus of energy efficiency, composting and recycled products.

Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport
Across United’s network, 39 percent of ground equipment is electric. IAH stands out from the crowd with its number 74 percent. This lowers emissions and reduces the carbon footprint, while using less fuel keeps the air around the airport cleaner for employees and guests.

Vail Resorts Provides Food, Monetary Assistance to Employees and Mountain Communities

Vail Resorts opted to close all 37 resorts early in response to the current COVID-19 pandemic, but the mountain resort operator also wanted to give back to the community in the face of this adversity. The excess perishable food from the various properties was donated to 30 local food banks, schools and community organizations in the communities where Vail Resorts employees live, work and play. Fruit, vegetables, cheese, juice, granola bars and more went to mountain communities from Colorado and Vermont to British Columbia.

The Perfect Fit

According to the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Office of Advocacy, small businesses create two-thirds of net new jobs and account for nearly 48 percent of the U.S. private sector workforce. And small- and medium-sized businesses outpace all other sectors as one of the fastest-growing in the United States. InterContinental® Hotels Group (IHG) goes above and beyond to create opportunities for this segment with its IHG® Business Edge program, voted Best Small- to Mid-Sized Business Program in Global Traveler’s 2019 GT Tested Reader Survey awards.
