How Emma is building a better working world

The platform EY Space for Earth that we are developing will have a huge impact on ESG related requirements. With EY Space for Earth we can help do the following:

  • Inform where to plant trees for decarbonisation
  • Help people see their remote assets without having to physically attend through dangerous terrain
  • Help prevent bushfires if we see there’s dry vegetation encroaching a rail line or power line
  • Help insurance companies respond quickly after a natural disaster.

These are just a few of the examples of how Space Tech can help drive the ESG agenda forward.
