Global Business Strategy

As a global security company, we share our customers’ priorities and support their strategic objectives. As world events repeatedly demonstrate, the linkage between social stability, strong governance, environmental protection and economic health is increasing. Commitments and action to conserve environmental resources and mitigate risks associated with climate change are of paramount importance for this generation and beyond.

We interact with many scientists and policymakers across our business on a regular basis including providing key decision-making data. For more than 25 years, our satellites, airborne platforms, sensor technologies and modeling systems have provided, among other uses, climate monitoring and measurement data from air and space to land and sea. Our technology supports critical applications and provides data for advancing the understanding of climate science. In turn, we are able to help inform policymakers about climate-related environmental risks and impacts to adaptation and resiliency plans.
