Trane, a business of Ingersoll Rand, honours airport for sustainable practices.
In recognition of its commitment to energy efficiency and environmental stewardship, the Warsaw Chopin Airport was recently honoured with the Trane Energy Efficiency Leader Award. The airport, which serves Poland’s air travel with regular air traffic, charters and cargo, reportedly accommodated 8.3 million passengers in 2009 – approximately 45% of the entire passenger air traffic of the country. The airport’s new terminal features energy efficient infrastructure systems that are also regarded as environmentally responsible. It is estimated that during the first 10 years of operation, these systems will save an amount of energy equivalent to that needed to supply a city of 11,000 inhabitants for a year. The terminal’s expansion is scheduled to be completed in March 2011.

According to Ingersoll Rand, its Center for Energy Efficiency and Sustainability, which selected the airport for the award, comprises international experts, who integrate the best practices for the long-term use of energy and other resources. They also develop solutions which advocate green policies, standards and education in the communities in which Ingersoll Rand operates and serves. The consortium was avowedly created by the company as part of its commitment to responsibility towards the environment.
