What is a Green Airport Environment? Introduction The Green Airport Initiative (GAI) states: The goal is not to just make airports greener, but to accommodate their growth in a manner illustrating the principles of sustainable development and create more livable communities. GAI is not a mechanism for trading off airport growth for environmental quality but a strategy for increasing both.
