After a year-long assessment process, Sust Global have announced that they will be part of the ESA ARTES 4.0 Business application program, delivering the project, “Sustainability Monitoring of Commodities using Geospatial Analytics (SMOCGEO)”. This project will drive machine learning-based transformations on data collections from active ESA space programs, enabling climate risk awareness and adaptation measures. Initial applications will target intelligence outcomes across the supply chains for global commodities.
Through their flagship Copernicus missions and sentinel satellites, ESA has pioneered earth observation programs, harnessing a rich catalogue of data on land surface, oceans and the atmosphere. Together, these analysis-ready datasets provide unique inputs to help monitor global climate change and sustainable operations. Sust Global will bridge these earth observation datasets with commercial applications focused on sustainability monitoring and climate intelligence, developing new climate adaptation measures.
More information about the project is available here.
