SITA and Envision Digital Partner to Advance Net Zero Push by Airports

Air transport industry IT provider SITA and Envision Digital, a Singapore-headquartered global net zero partner and Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT) technology firm signed a new partnership to help airports reduce operational costs and support their net zero ambitions.

The companies have developed solutions that allow real-time data IOT flows, enabling airports to monitor and report their energy usage, emissions from aircraft and other vehicles, and their carbon footprint.

Airports can use these data feeds to provide insights that allow them to take action to reduce consumption costs and resulting emissions. In the future, the above solutions will allow airports to harness and orchestrate renewable energy sources.

These solutions will be pivotal to SITA’s Total Airport Management concept, which will help airports manage every aspect of their operation and bring sustainability into the heart of holistic operational decision-making.  

Drew Griffiths, Head of airports at Sita said: “Today, SITA works with nearly 1,000 airports globally to manage every aspect of their operations, from baggage and passenger processing to airside and aircraft operations. Supporting airports to reduce costs and cut their greenhouse gas emissions is a natural extension of this offering and one our customers have asked for. We look forward to working with Envision in delivering this new capability as part of our wider airport offering.” 

As part of the partnership, SITA will create a new Center of Excellence to accelerate product development and customer project delivery.
