Environmental Reporting

Each year Massport produces a comprehensive environmental report for Boston Logan International Airport in the form of either an Environmental Data Report (EDR) or the more complex Environmental Status and Planning Report (ESPR). Key sections of the ESPR/EDRs address Logan activity levels (aircraft and vehicular traffic), Logan planning initiatives, regional transportation, noise abatement, air quality emissions reduction, water quality management, sustainability initiatives and environmental mitigation tracking. The documents also provide status updates on Logan construction projects.

The most recent EDR report is the 2014 Environmental Data Report (42 MB) and Technical Appendices (25 MB).

The  2012/2013 Environmental Data Report (37 MB) and Technical Appendices (25 MB) is also available. 

The 2012 Environmental Data Report status update is also available.

The most recent ESPR report is the 2011 Environmental Status & Planning Report (30 MB) including the 2011 ESPR Appendices (40 MB) which was submitted to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs, and discusses the status of airport operations, environmental conditions, and Massport milestones achieved in 2011.

The 2011 Environmental Status & Planning Report includes information on:

  • The 2011 ESPR expands the annual EDRs by presenting historic conditions at   Logan Airport dating back to 1990 and also includes a discussion of future activity levels through 2020.
