ESG

HSAT can monitor land, sea and forests. Globally.  Verifying ESG policies and protecting companies and the environment from unprincipled suppliers.

Effective ESG is critical for our future. Good ESG policies and processes will not just protect the environment but have also been shown to support a company’s bottom line

ESG challenges – illegal logging, misuse of water or land, greenhouse emissions and crop burning – can occur anywhere across the supply chain.

No ethical company, or trusted brand, wants to be engaged in the inappropriate or illegal practices.

Unfortunately, monitoring remote locations and enforcing ESG compliance is challenging.

HSAT can monitor farms, factories, and entire regions – constantly.

Satellite data can address many challenges with ESG that are simply not possible with traditional methods – either due to costs or risks.

Monitoring pollution from plants and factories – is challenging if they are in remote and/or dangerous locations. Validating practices on all farms and third-party suppliers is not viable with traditional methods. The gloal scale, remote location and a number of suppliers – means this is just not possible.

Satellites solve this by monitoring the entire world – every day. Satellites are able to detect pollutants at a global scale and at a farm level – spotting changes in behaviour, identifying risks and providing constant vigil. .

Satellite data can address many challenges with ESG that are simply not possible, at scale, with local monitoring:

Examples of risks that HSAT can monitor:

  • Land and Biodiversity
  • Deforestation
  • Green House Emissions
  • Atmospheric Pollutants
  • Water Misuse
  • Burning Stubble/Crops
  • Coastal eutrophication

HSAT can offer these capabilities as a managed service – with dashboard and alert systems, or data fees to support part of an existing platform.
