To achieve this honor, the Aruba Airport Authority underwent an independent assurance audit on sustainability which evaluated if their operations met the international sustainability criteria. Ultimately, the official audit found that AAA integrates sustainable education within the community, environmental action throughout its department operations and encourages environmental responsibility with their partners.

Implementing building management systems
Initiatives to reduce energy consumption airport-wide
Projects aimed at reducing pilot waste
Editing purchasing policies to be more sustainable
