SITA achieved ISO 14001:2015 for six offices between 2014 and 2019 (now re-certified for three more years). That brings the total to seven SITA offices now globally certified, which together account for over 40% of SITA’s office-based staff. The offices are based in Atlanta, Burlington, Geneva, London, Montreal, Rome and Singapore.

“This is a clear demonstration to our customers, partners and the air transport industry of how SITA is working towards a sustainable future and it supports our ambition to be carbon neutral by 2022. We will continue to do this through our Planet+ program, with clear objective setting and measurement, focusing on reducing our travel footprint, sustainable workplaces and carbon offsetting,” said Barbara Dalibard, CEO, SITA.

“We are committed to understanding and managing our environmental impacts wherever we are in the world. We do this through our corporate environment policy, measuring environmental data at 26 key sites, which represent 81% of our workforce.”

SITA first began gathering environmental data at SITA locations in 2011, including electricity, water and paper consumption, IT asset recycling, air travel mileage and more. In 2014 SITA took a strategic decision to adopt ISO 14001 as its framework for managing environmental impacts and ensuring best practice around environmental management.

ISO14001:2015 (Environmental Management Systems - EMS) certification is a milestone for organizations committed to sustainable operations, as the second most popular ISO certification after ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems. ISO14001:2015 provides externally audited assurance to an organization’s customers and partners of a commitment to environmental sustainability and responsible practices.

SITA has also achieved certification to ISO and other international standards for specific product and service areas and sites. These certifications demonstrate commitment to management consistency, control and continual improvement not only on environmental matters but throughout the business.
