Our sustainability solutions reflect decades of experience in energy, utilities, manufacturing, distribution, government and space. 

These solutions help clients manage smart grids, smart metering and renewable energy assets, as well as sustainable transport and supply chains. They support electric vehicle charge point management, emissions monitoring, eco-friendly route planning and carbon management. They also use space data to help protect the environment. For example, we use Earth observation data to detect, manage and predict floods, fires, vegetation and forestry growth, as well as oil spills and leaks. Examples include:

“Through our ethical, socially and environmentally sustainable business practices, we strive to deliver value for all three of our stakeholders – our clients, our employees and our shareholders.”
