‘SITA Moves Towards Achieving Net Carbon Zero Goal with Approval of Science-Based Emission Reduction Targets’

Global aviation IT company SITA has taken a significant step towards achieving carbon neutrality by having its emission reduction targets validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). This move is aligned with SITA’s commitment to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C and its pledge made in 2022 to actively work towards achieving a net zero carbon balance.

The validation of SITA’s targets by SBTi is a crucial milestone in the company’s journey towards becoming carbon net zero by 2050. SITA’s emission reduction targets are in line with the latest climate science and SBTi’s Net-Zero Standard, providing a clear framework for companies to develop and achieve their net zero goals.

SITA’s commitment to reducing emissions includes targeting a 46.2% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and a minimum 90% reduction across all scopes by 2050, based on 2019 levels. The company is also focused on responsible sourcing practices, with a goal of ensuring that 50% of suppliers by spend have science-based targets in place by FY2027.

In addition, SITA is dedicated to transitioning to renewable energy, aiming to reach 80% renewable energy usage by 2025 and 100% by 2030. This will involve optimizing energy consumption at SITA offices and sourcing renewable energy wherever possible.

CEO David Lavorel emphasized SITA’s commitment to addressing climate change, stating that the company views it as the most pressing issue facing the planet. Lavorel highlighted the importance of businesses setting ambitious emission reduction targets in line with climate science to limit global warming.

SITA will provide annual reports on its climate targets and progress towards achieving them, demonstrating its dedication to transparency and sustainability. As a trusted partner in the aviation industry, SITA continues to play an active role in helping the industry meet emission reduction targets and emphasizes the need for global cooperation in addressing climate change.

SBTi plays a crucial role in promoting best practices in target setting based on climate science, offering resources and guidance to reduce barriers to adoption, and independently assessing and approving company targets.
