Our goals

Satellite data plays a crucial role in advancing and monitoring progress toward the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The application of satellite technology contributes to various aspects of sustainable development, including environmental monitoring, resource management, disaster response, and improved access to information. Below are some ways in which satellite data impacts sustainable development goals.
Environmental Monitoring
  • Climate Action (SDG 13): Satellite data is instrumental in monitoring climate patterns, tracking changes in temperature, sea levels, and greenhouse gas emissions. This information helps in understanding climate change impacts and formulating strategies to mitigate them
  • Life Below Water (SDG 14) and Life on Land (SDG 15): Satellites enable the monitoring of oceans, forests, and biodiversity. They help track deforestation, identify illegal fishing activities, and monitor changes in ecosystems.
Resource Management
  • Clean Water and Sanitation (SDG 6): Satellite data aids in monitoring water resources, identifying potential sources of contamination, and assessing water quality. This information is crucial for effective water management and ensuring access to clean water
  • Zero Hunger (SDG 2): Satellite data supports precision agriculture by providing information on crop health, soil moisture, and land use. This can optimise farming practices, reduce waste, and improve food security.
  • Affordable and Clean Energy (SDG 7): Satellite data helps identify suitable locations for renewable energy sources such as solar and wind farms. It aids in monitoring energy infrastructure and optimising energy distribution.
Disaster Response and Resilience
  • Resilience to Natural Disasters (SDG 11): Satellites contribute to early warning systems for natural disasters such as hurricanes, floods, and wildfires. They assist in disaster response and recovery by providing real-time information on affected areas
  • Good Health and Well-being (SDG 3): Satellite data supports health-related initiatives by tracking disease vectors, monitoring the spread of infectious diseases, and assessing health infrastructure in remote areas.
Infrastructure Development
  • Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure (SDG 9): Satellite data aids in planning and monitoring infrastructure development projects. It provides insights into transportation networks, urban expansion, and the impact of development on the environment.
Improved Access to Information
  • Quality Education (SDG 4): Satellite data can contribute to educational initiatives by providing access to information in remote or underserved areas. It supports distance learning and educational research.
Global Partnerships
  • Partnerships for the Goals (SDG 17): Satellite data facilitates global collaboration by providing a shared source of information. It supports international efforts to address climate change, environmental conservation, and disaster response
