SYNGENERA TO JOIN AMADEUS NEXT
Syngenera has signed an agreement to join Amadeus Next, the leading travel technology community in Asia Pacific. Syngenera will be developing an enterprise application for the aviation industry that addresses the expected growth in demand for both carbon offsets and sustainable jet fuel, while supporting airline contributions to the Sustainable Development Goals.
The Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA) is set to commence with voluntary Pilot and First phases from 2021-2026, after which carbon offset and sustainable jet fuel requirements for international civil aviation will become mandatory. A total of 69 nations have now volunteered to participate in the Pilot and First phases of CORSIA. Syngenera estimates that CORSIA requirements will account for a substantial component of the growth in demand for carbon offsets and sustainable jet fuel for the aviation industry post 2020.
It is important to note that CORSIA has neither endorsed nor prohibited specific offset types. A technical committee has been established to decide on offset criteria and specific offset types. It is anticipated that these offsets will generate significant funding to help conserve the world’s forests and reforest degraded land.
“We are excited to be working with Syngerera, their solution is very relevant and topical for the aviation industry and we believe that by working in partnership with them we can help them to achieve their goals. We look forward to welcoming them into our community and introducing them to our customers and partners” says Matt James, Senior Manager Corporate Strategy & Business Development, Amadeus Asia Pacific. Syngenera is positioned to provide forest carbon offsets, sustainable fuel feedstock, and non-wood forest bio trade products for airlines and airports. Syngenera’s comprehensive approach meets the highest international standards and sustainability requirements for the global aviation industry. The Syngenera team is committed to this cause and has the capability to transform rainforest, mangrove, peatland and other types of natural capital assets into scalable impact investments.
“We believe that by joining Amadeus Next, Syngenera can accelerate the development of timely solutions for the aviation sector, with a beta product expected to be launched by 2020” said David Hodgkinson, a director of Syngenera. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
