A Vision for a Brighter Future

The Indianapolis Airport Authority (IAA) is dedicated to maintaining and advancing sustainability, not only at the airport itself, but in the surrounding community. The IAA is home to the Sodalis Nature Park in Hendricks County, which provides a safe haven for the endangered Indiana bat and other wildlife, and creates a fun and educational place for visitors to bring their families and spend time fishing, walking the trails, or just communing with nature. The nearby bee apiary cultivates local bees and helps to combat the current slump in the bee population of the United States. The Indianapolis Midfield Terminal Complex is the first airport to receive LEED-certification, breaking ground for sustainability measures in the world of air travel. Visible on the way to the terminal is the extensive IND Solar Farm, spanning over 183 acres and capturing the energy of the sun to power over 3,000 Hoosier homes.
