Every modern city in the 21st century should enable its residents to quickly and easily move to other cities within the country, Europe and the world. This is very often implemented through air transport. An inseparable element of this type of conveyance is the presence of facilities such as airports in the vicinity of cities. In 2015, a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals  was established by the United Nations. Their task is, inter alia, environmental protection. These goals should also be taken into account in the management of passenger airports. The article presents a critical review of the feasibility of selected sustainable development goals through solutions in the field of environmental engineering. These include green walls and roofs, the use of renewable energy, and devices that effectively save water and energy. Then, an analysis of the possibilities of their application at passenger airports was carried out. The use of devices increasing the efficiency to achieve sustainable development goals for already implemented solutions was also taken into account. Sometimes a simple and inexpensive investment can significantly improve the quality of natural resources protection.
