The terminal will be built with 100% recycled material. The best thing is that these materials are available in Mexico. This new construction will boost the regional economy and the building will double the area of the current terminal. Besides being friendly to our planet.

"The Guadalajara and Puerto Vallarta terminals have been designed from a 'Net Zero' concept since their conception. They will be 100% sustainable, achieving the lowest impact on the carbon footprint", said Laura Diez Barroso, President of the Board of GAP.

Guadalajara's airport has become the third most important in the country, just behind Mexico City and Cancun.

The new construction will have water recovery, treatment and collection systems. In addition, the building is intended to be powered by solar energy, either with natural light entry spaces or alternative generation sources.

As for the Net Zero; it is an international certification. Its objective is that by 2030, all buildings will be sustainable and not generate carbon emissions.

In addition to their energy demand being taken advantage of by the sun, the wind or the earth.

On the other hand, the construction of the second commercial runway is expected to start in mid-2021.

Hopefully, by next year, large companies will join initiatives like these. Where the buildings are 100% sustainable and environmentally friendly.
