Montreal, MAY 12, 2022 – NorthStar Earth & Space endorses the Net Zero Space Declaration of the Paris Peace Forum, an international initiative gathering like-minded actors calling to achieving sustainable use of outer space for the benefit of all humankind by 2030.
“The Net Zero Space Declaration fully aligns with NorthStar’s core values of sustainability. Space is fundamental to our economy, quality of life, and enables critical infrastructure for countless essential services. This environment demands immediate action from all stakeholders to protect this invaluable natural resource,” said Stewart Bain, CEO & Founder of NorthStar Earth & Space.
As part of its endorsement of the Net Zero Space Initiative, NorthStar pledges to help facilitate safe and sustainable operations through the delivery of high-fidelity commercial space services for satellite operators. NorthStar’s Space Information & Intelligence services will be launched in 2023 bringing the first space-based commercial information service to cover all near-Earth orbits.
NorthStar Earth & Space is headquartered in Montréal, Canada. NorthStar has recently launched its European headquarters in Luxembourg with the support of the Luxembourg Future Fund. NorthStar also has an office in Washington, D.C.
NorthStar seeks to empower humanity to preserve our planet through a unique Space and Earth information & intelligence platform using space-based sensors.
