ENVISA are a French Aviation and Environmental consulting company based in Paris. They provide consultancy services to the aviation industry developing prototype tools in areas such as economics & sustainability, environmental impacts, global emissions, local air quality, meteorology and noise. LEC student James Hulme visited ENVISA in Paris at the start of the placement to gain an understanding of the company and to define the project scope in more detail. James’ goal was to develop a new prototype for ENVISA for assessing airport emissions.

Impact & Outcomes

James also compiled a report assessing key sources of emissions from airports and made suggestions and recommendations as to how they can reduce emissions to comply with the Airport Carbon Accreditation (AAC) scheme. The placement undoubtedly bought benefits to both James and ENVISA. The company benefitted from a high quality report and development of a new tool for the company to use as part of their diagnostic package and James through having gained insight into a commercial business, networking with stakeholders and developing skills in a business environment to help with future career prospects.
