Founded in 1970, Earth Day is a movement that mobilises over 1 billion people annually to protect the planet. The mission aims to motivate, educate, and diversify the environmental movement worldwide.

In celebration of Earth Day 2024, we would like to take the opportunity to reflect on the current state of our environment and the achievements that have been made and consider what many advancements still need to be made.

As the world sees more natural disasters than ever before – flooding, fires and high temperatures becoming the norm in many parts of the world, we must approach this rapid level of climate change with innovative solutions. Businesses must address emissions across various sectors, including energy, electrification, industrial processes, agriculture, and clean power generation. Earth Observation (EO) satellites and SpaceTech capabilities emerge as a frontier for addressing these challenges.

Satellites monitor our planet constantly to help track climate change and its effects, such as rising sea levels, crop yields, wildfires, and atmospheric changes. They provide the most accurate weather reports and warn us of impending natural disasters. Satellite data delivers real-time analysis to support global security, food security, climate change, and sustainability. This data is becoming an increasingly important currency for governments and commercial customers in their decision-making.

Seraphim's investments are measured against the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We are proud to have a portfolio of companies squarely addressing the world's critical challenges today. 

At Seraphim, we view Earth Day not only as a moment of reflection but a call to action. By harnessing the power of space exploration and technology, we can better understand, appreciate, and protect our planet for generations to come.
