Phoenix Sky Harbor’s Strong Commitment to Sustainability Results in a Major Accomplishmenthttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/environmental-programs/1530Environment & Sustainability9/24/2020 9:35:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1530/Newsroom_Environment_019.jpgPhoenix Sky Harbor’s Strong Commitment to Sustainability Results in a Major Accomplishment<div class="ExternalClassFFD5FBFCCDE242DB89EE0398CD75B4D4"><html> <p>Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, America's Friendliest Airport®, is committed to sustainability. Since 2014, the Airport has undertaken measures to be more sustainable. These efforts have not gone unnoticed in the aviation industry, as for the past four years, Phoenix Sky Harbor has achieved and maintained a Level 2 status with the Airport Carbon Accreditation Program. In 2020, however, Phoenix Sky Harbor has taken its sustainability efforts one step further and has achieved Level 3 Accreditation. Phoenix Sky Harbor is among an elite group of airports to attain this level as there are only seven airport systems in the US and 17 airports overall in North America who have reached this level or above.</p> <p>"Attaining Level 3 of the Airport Carbon Accreditation Program is a remarkable achievement," said Director of Aviation Services James E. Bennett. “Our commitment to sustainability is strong with numerous initiatives underway, all while we continue to deliver world-class service to our customers each day."</p> <p>The Airport Carbon Accreditation Program is a voluntary initiative for airports that want to demonstrate their commitment to reduce global warming and climate change. It serves as an international carbon management certification standard for airports and requires participating airports to create a carbon footprint of emissions so that they can see where the greatest reductions can be made and monitor progress.</p> <p>More than 90% of Phoenix Sky Harbor's carbon footprint is from the purchase of electricity. Phoenix Sky Harbor has had solar panels at its Rental Car Center and East Economy Parking areas since 2012, but it recently installed a third solar system at the City of Phoenix Aviation Department's Corporate Office Building. Additionally, the Airport enacted energy reduction measures such as using LED lighting. LED lighting conversions have taken place at Terminal 4, in the Terminal 4 Garage, in the East Economy Garage, and on the airfield. As a result, of conservation measures, there has been a 17% reduction in energy used.</p> <p>Reporting in 2020 for calendar year 2019, Phoenix Sky Harbor certified at Level 3 Optimization. This means that the airport had a year-to-year reduction in airport-owned and operational emissions associated with terminal electricity and fleet vehicles among others, but also required the Airport to calculate user and tenant activities. The report includes carbon emissions associated with all activities at the airport such as estimating aircraft emissions, emissions from vehicles coming to the airport, tenant electricity, and more. With this information, the Airport will develop a plan with stakeholders so that they can be engaged in working together to reduce emissions.</p> <p>Other sustainability initiatives include:</p> <ul> <li>Upgrading HVAC cooling systems with more energy-efficient technology.</li> <li>Decreasing energy used in buildings and on the airfield. Since 2009, the goal of a 20% reduction is almost achieved.</li> <li>The Airport's 40% waste diversion goal has been achieved.</li> <li>Transitioning to 100% xeriscape which resulted in the savings of more than 5 million gallons of water each year.</li> <li>Installing a new Terminal 4 Cooling Tower Soft Water Pre-Treatment system prolongs the life of the equipment and saves more than 22 million gallons of water annually.</li> <li>Creating a Leadership in Energy Environmental Design (LEED) silver building featuring new, energy, efficient equipment as part of the Terminal 3 Modernization Program.</li> </ul> <p>A full report on Phoenix Sky Harbor's numerous sustainability initiatives is available at <a href="https://www.skyharbor.com/about/Sustainability" target="_blank">https://www.skyharbor.com/about/Sustainability</a> For more information on the Airport Carbon Accreditation Program, visit <a href="http://www.airportcarbonaccreditation.org/" target="_blank">http://www.airportcarbonaccreditation.org/</a>.</p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <strong></strong> <strong>– 30 –</strong> </p> <p style="text-align:left;">Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, America's Friendliest Airport®, has an annual economic impact of more than $38 billion. Every day approximately 1,200 aircraft and more than 125,000 passengers arrive and depart at Sky Harbor. PHX Sky Harbor is funded with Airport revenue. No tax dollars are used to support the Airport.</p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/oepNewsenvironmental-programsPhoto of Phoenix Sky HarborEnvironmentHeather Shelbrack602-683-2634heather.shelbrack@phoenix.govhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/MediaContact/Attachments/7/Heather_Lissner.jpgPHXEnvironment

Viewer discretion is advised.<br></p>The Phoenix Police Department released a Critical Incident Briefing (CIB) video that includes audio, visuals and information related to an officer-involved shooting (OIS) which occurred on April 3, 2021 in the area of 75th Avenue and Indian School Road.       <br><br>This incident started around 8:00pm, when an adult male suspect, later identified as 26-year-old Jose Arenas, threatened multiple people with a handgun and attempted to rob them.<br><br>Patrol officers from the Maryvale Precinct and a police helicopter were nearby when 9-1-1 began receiving calls about Arenas pointing a handgun at multiple people. When officers arrived, they searched the area and located Arenas outside a nearby restaurant, where he was pointing a gun at a family in a car, and at the police helicopter.  <br><br>Officers told Arenas to drop the gun, but he refused. He fled into the restaurant which was occupied by multiple people. Once inside he pointed the gun and assaulted two customers. An officer followed Arenas into the restaurant and gave another command to drop the gun, which Arenas ignored.  He pointed the handgun at the officer, and the officer fired at Arenas, striking him.  <br><br>After checking the back area of the restaurant, Officers provided medical aid to Arenas until Phoenix Fire Personnel arrived and transported him to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased. There were no injuries to any of the victims or the officers.<br><br>The handgun used by Arenas was recovered on scene.<br><br>The officer involved in this shooting is assigned to the Maryvale Precinct, Patrol Division, and has been with the department for 2 years.<br> <br>Conclusions about whether the actions of the officers are consistent with department policy and the law will not be made until all facts are known and the investigation is complete. An internal investigation by the Professional Standard Bureau is currently underway, in addition to a criminal investigation. Once the criminal investigation is complete it will then be reviewed by the Maricopa County Attorney's Office.<br> <br>Public records law required redaction of certain personal identifying information before video is released publicly. This is why you may see some parts of Body Worn Camera (BWC) blurred or covered with a black box. Redacted video is released to local media in conjunction with the release of this Critical Incident Briefing for independent review and publication. Complete, unedited versions of the BWC are released to attorneys and the courts as evidence in a criminal case.<br><br></html></div>https://phoenix.gov/policeVideo
