Embodied Carbon – The Next Step Towards Zero Carbon Airports

Airports have made significant strides in recent years to understand and minimise the carbon emissions arising from their day to day operations. Many operators airports have taken a wider view of carbon emissions to include the take-off and landing cycle for aircraft and the different forms of surface transport taking people and goods to and from the airport. In comparison, the embodied carbon contained in buildings and other physical infrastructure has received much less attention. However, the impacts are significant with the carbon emissions resulting from the construction of a new building being similar to the emissions arising from the operation of the building over its whole lifetime. If airports are to fully address their carbon impacts they need to develop a much better understanding of how to minimise the carbon content of their buildings and infrastructure

How do you improve the safety and reliability of people flow at an airport? By connecting to the cloud! Keeping people on the move in increasingly busy airports in a safe, pleasant, and efficient way is more challenging than ever. As escalators, autowalks and elevators play an increasingly vital role, data from this equipment can be monitored, analysed and displayed in real-time, to improve performance, reliability and safety. Cognitive learning can also help identify and predict faults before they even happen!

All of the conferences were very interesting and the timings were perfect – it was just the right amount of time for each speaker and it was very engaging. The topics were also very relevant. Overall, I attended most of the sessions and I really liked them; we found very new concepts and new technologies.

Dalia Elbaltaji, Account Manager, SITA, and Laike Tafesse, Director Solution Design, Airport Solution Line - SITA

I attended the Security & Crisis Management Summit which was focused on inside threats and all of the speakers that I heard were focusing on the matter and were giving very nice suggestions for the future. The level was very high and met my expectations for sure.

Massimo Bonechi, Defence Security & Transportation Direction - Thales

The whole organisation behind the event was great and I particularly enjoyed the fact that there were different sessions of the conference. It is interesting because sometimes you tend to think that something might not be of your core interest but it turns out to be. And also, I really enjoyed the networking and in general coming together with the people from the industry.

Peder Beausang, Corporate Crisis Manager, Corporate Security and Safety - Swedavia

Discussions in the conference sessions have been very engaging, with a lot of interaction between the speakers and the audience. The networking has been excellent – I am pleased with the good contacts we have made both regionally and internationally.
