A Voyage to Net Zero: How Space-Based Technologies Can Deliver the Glasgow Climate Pact

Resulting from the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference in November, the Glasgow Climate Pact offers the best and final chance to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels. However, everyone must step up efforts to deliver on its ambitious — and necessary — commitments. The pact identifies key areas for action on climate change, including adaptation, mitigation, loss and damage, and climate finance, as well as technology transfer and capacity-building.

The space sector is uniquely placed to aid progress across all these areas — especially in driving the adoption of innovative tools to inform climate-based decision-making. Space technologies can also track emission levels as countries move toward their midcentury targets, helping to hold governments and companies to account.

To limit warming to 1.5 C, the world must lower carbon dioxide emissions by 45% by 2030 and data insights must drive action toward significant reductions. Close collaboration with the space sector will be key in enabling scalable, impactful solutions.

This event, hosted by Devex in partnership with the Satellite Applications Catapult, will look at how the space sector can drive forward the key action areas identified at COP 26, as well as accelerate the introduction of new solutions to the increasingly urgent climate crisis.
