A Sustainable YXC

The success of the Canadian Rockies International Airport is intrinsically linked to our environmental, social, and economic sustainability. Our values guide us in taking a sustainable approach to our planning, decisions, and actions every day.

In 2012 YXC received the William Templeton award, nominated by the Dean of Aerospace of BCIT, who highlighted the sustainability initiatives at YXC. View the Daily Townsman’s news article: “Aviation Council honours Cranbrook airport” for more information.

Living in the Kootenay Rockies region we are inspired every day by our environmental and cultural surroundings. The stunning Rocky Mountain view from YXC drives us to do our best.

The airport is mid-process in developing an extensive sustainability plan, including a goals and results matrix. Stay tuned as we continue to develop and implement our plan.
