ALIGHT is an EU-funded Smart Airport programme, launched in November 2020 and running for four years to develop a model of a sustainable airport of the future.


The 16 programme partners are working hard towards a vision of zero-emission aviation to be showcased at Copenhagen Airport, with fellow airports in Rome, Vilnius and Warsaw looking to replicate best practice solutions developed through ALIGHT. 


The ALIGHT concept will demonstrate the supply, integration and use of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) and the supply, integration and implementation of smart energy for use in the airport. 


RSB will provide important guidance on the use of Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) in the programme – ensuring that the programme utilises SAF that is compliant with RSB’s best-in-class sustainability standard and by providing expert advice and support throughout the programme.

Programme Aims

1. To facilitate Copenhagen Airport as a Lighthouse Airport, showing the sustainable way towards zero emission airport operation.


2. To facilitate the deployment of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF), e-mobility, energy storage and waste heat recovery at Copenhagen Airport (Lighthouse airport), Rome Airport, Vilnius Airport (fellow airport) and the new Warsaw Airport.

3. To secure knowledge transfer and tools supporting a smooth and efficient replication on a European scale.
