Satellite monitoring of emissions from industrial facilities

GHGSat’s vision is to become the global reference for the remote sensing of greenhouse gas emissions from industrial sites, using satellite technology.

GHGSat uses its own satellites to monitor greenhouse gas emissions from selected industrial sites, anywhere in the world. GHGSat enables industrial operators to better understand, control and reduce their emissions. GHGSat also combines its own unique measurements with information from other satellites, ground sensors and databases to generate actionable insights and predictive analytics to further mitigate greenhouse gas emissions worldwide.
