SAN Launches Green Concessions Program

 

Imagine as a passenger you stroll through the terminals looking for an environmentally-friendly business to eat or shop at. You spot a green concession sign, walk into a storefront, and find efficient appliances, healthier products, and ease of mind knowing you made a greener choice that day. Now that can be reality while traveling through SAN!

At SAN we’re always looking for ways to engage our tenants to participate in our sustainability initiatives. In July 2017, SAN launched the Green Concessions Program to provide education and support to Concessionaires actively pursuing excellence in terms of environmental, social, and financial objects.

This voluntary rewards and recognition program provides opportunities for our concessionaires to receive training, marketing and promotional opportunities, and technical consulting for their green business practices. Concessionaires receive education and resources so they can enact best practices and in return have access to a resource library and receive recognition through window decals, certificates, and other promotional opportunities.

Concessionaire partners in the program also benefit from more efficient business operations, reduced business costs, improved employee health and morale, and increased marketing and awareness of green practices.

Passengers will have access to healthier foods, environmental packaging, and purchasing power. For the Airport, the Green Concessions program was identified as a priority action in both the Strategic Energy Plan and Water Stewardship Plan as a way to engage tenants in lowering SAN’s utility usage and costs. The program will reduce on-site energy, water, and waste consumption resulting in reduced operating costs and a healthier environment for those we serve.

Nine initial concession storefronts were recognized for their program participation at the Airport Authority’s All Concessions Meeting on July 12th.
