SITA and Envision Digital, a Singapore-headquartered global net zero partner and Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT) technology leader, have joined forces 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 insights from these data feeds to take action to reduce consumption costs and resulting emissions. In 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.
As part of the partnership, SITA will create a new Centre of Excellence to accelerate product development and customer project delivery. The partnership harnesses Envision Digital’s strengths in energy management and smart building solutions, with SITA’s strengths in air transport technology and operations to support airports and make their operation more efficient and sustainable.
Drew Griffiths, head of SITA at Airports, shared: “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.”
