14 Dec 2021
Astrocast and the Access to Water Foundation have joined forces to provide a sustainable solution for access to drinking water in ...
In 2015, 193 countries committed to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Since then, countries and companies around the world are using these guidelines to achieve world health objectives. To take this even further, the European Space Agency has applied these goals to the development of aerospace technologies that further the development of humankind. Astrocast is one of those companies, taking this mission to heart, and embedding it into everything we do.
On this Earth Day, we want to highlight our achievements on the road to fulfilling these goals. This is our scorecard showing where we are on the sustainability path. Our goal is to drive toward all 17 key Sustainable Development Goals. These goals are well in line with our company mission to connect the world with the most advanced and sustainable IoT solution, making IoT global and benefiting all.
Tracking with the outlined UN SDG goals below, here is where we are so far.
One of our most important metrics is the health and well-being of our teams. With our new facilities and labs we have put employee health at their center.
At Astrocast we take pride in the diversity of our team and the programs we have instituted to allow our teams to grow professionally as they work. We also foster a culture of diversity and inclusion as we are eager to see more women in technology and science.
You can’t get more innovative than our advanced SatIoT service that enables companies to take their own IoT strategies further, using our Swiss state-of-the-art nanosatellites, portals, and terminals.
It is important to have a backup. During traumatic weather, our service can cut through the storm to back up cities and communities who rely on world-wide access.
Astrocast is a game changer for agtech, allowing every plant or animal to have its own support in the field. We enable a new type of livestock development and management that is more humane, profitable and sustainable.
Our SatIoT services are allowing researchers to measure the world. Whether it’s the temperature of sea through migrating turtles, or tracking the loss of ice at the poles, Astrocast brings a new sky view to climate change.
When an animal surfaces they delight us with a whole new level of insight. Astrocast allows companies to measure their adventures and understand how each turtle, whale, or fish is impacted by the world above water. And improve wildlife quality under water by providing our solutions to companies like Wildlife Computers.
Food is life and with Astrocast, farmers can grow that food in a more natural and sustainable matter, by tracking the small changes that enable us to field the world and feed the Earth.
These are just a few of Astrocast’s efforts toward enabling global sustainability. We will keep you posted as we hit more sustainability milestones throughout the year. Make sure to sign up to our newsletter to not miss them!
