dnata Invested in Solar Energy at Changi Airport


Dnata, a global air and travel service provider, continues to invest in infrastructure and equipment to improve resource efficiency. The company has recently installed a 3.5 megawatt-peak rooftop solar power system across its operations, including its cargo and catering facilities, at Changi Airport (SIN). The rooftop power plant comprises over 6,500 individual solar panels. It will generate more than 4.300-megawatt-hours of green power each year, enabling Dnata to reduce its electricity-related carbon emissions by 20% annually in Singapore.

Mr. David Barker, Dnata’s Divisional Senior Vice President for Airport Operations, said, “We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint to ensure the highest possible environmental efficiency across our operations. The inauguration of the solar power system in Singapore marks a significant milestone in our efforts to make dnata’s operations even more sustainable and reduce our carbon footprint by 20% in the next two years globally.”

In recent years, Dnata has significantly invested in infrastructure, equipment, and process improvement to improve further operational efficiency with the strategic objective of reducing 20% of its carbon footprint globally by 2024. Dnata has replaced and refurbished ground support equipment at airports to decrease engine emissions and invested in facilities incorporating the latest carbon reduction initiatives in design and operation. This investment has successfully embedded its environmental framework across its broad-spanning travel business and plans to empower customers to make better travel choices.

In Singapore, Dnata took initiatives to reduce food waste across its catering operations and replaced ground support equipment (GSE) and forklifts with hybrid or electric alternatives. At the same time, refurbishing selected GSEs were appropriate to extend life cycles, reduce waste and update them to the latest safety and quality standards. Recently, Dnata has added 44 electric baggage tractors to its GSE fleet at Changi Airport. Globally, Dnata offers quality and reliable ground handling cargo, catering, and retail services at over 120 airports in 19 countries. In Singapore, the company serves more than 50 airline customers with a team of 1,100 highly trained employees.
