Satellite Imagery: Fundamental to Taking Climate Action

Date TBA

Satellite imagery is fundamental to understanding climate change and assessing risks to businesses and communities. The biggest challenge is being able to access reliable data to gain insights, make decisions and take action. From corporate planning to government policy-making, satellite data is foundational to taking climate action.

With satellite imagery ranging from 10-meter to 30-centimeter (and increasingly higher) resolution imagery, we have created a near real-time sensor network that provides an unprecedented view and deep understanding of the human impact on our planet. Ground truths exposed by satellite imagery and other remotely sensed data are an important way to build the shared understanding required to create solutions for resilient communities and reaching net-zero initiatives.

Climate change concerns require all of us to act. Access to satellite data can map our path to resiliency.
