Scipio, a data analytics company for smart cities, is the only Brazilian company specializing in the decarbonization of public transport, selected by the CivTech Alliance COP26 Global Scale-up Program to participate in the United Nations on Climate Change (COP26) in Glasgow, Scotland.

Roberto Speicys, Co-founder and CEO of Scipopulis, a green4T company, will present Trancity, a monitoring platform that supports the management, planning and operation of public transport systems. The technology helps public administrators make decisions that reduce traffic and reduce its environmental impact.

Trancity has been taken over by seven cities in Brazil, including Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte and Florianopolis. In total, it manages the data of more than 31,000 buses that carry an average of 349 million passengers per month. It also processes data from Santiago, Chile (7,000 buses), and Vilnius, Lithuania (420 buses).

“Transport accounts for 25% of gas emissions, which can be reduced by promoting the use of public transport and the development of electromobility. The use of renewable energies also leads to more profitable operations in the long term. This topic must definitely be discussed at COP26 in order to to achieve the goals proposed by the UN, “says Speicys.

“We are in the process of expanding our activities in Europe and have identified opportunities for Trancity in European countries. With our experience in cities of different sizes and with different requirements, we will be able to contribute to making transport more sustainable,” adds Speicys.

Scipopulis participates in the CivTech Alliance Global Scale-up Program because of its expertise in the field of decarbonization of transport – one of the challenges of the program, besides environmental resilience and the reduction of food waste. Eighteen innovative companies and governments from ten countries have joined the alliance.

“We had meetings with participants from Denmark, Germany, the USA, Australia, Estonia, Spain, Lithuania, Poland and Scotland. They are converting their diesel fleets to electric vehicles, albeit at an early stage, as in Brazil. The decarbonization of transport is for all very important, “says Speicys.

“Public administrations can promote this change by calling for electric buses in tenders. Vehicle manufacturers and operators must keep pace with this change so that we can reduce traffic emissions more quickly,” concluded Speicys. Scipopulis will also present Trancity at the stand of the NGO Responding to Climate Change (RTCC).
