New report from Inmarsat and Globant finds existing satellite technologies could save up to 5.5 billion tonnes of CO2 a year

(BUSINESS WIRE) -- Satellite technologies are already reducing carbon emissions by 1.5 billion tonnes (or 1.5 gigatons) every year, according to independent research commissioned by Inmarsat from leading consultants at Globant’s Sustainable Business Studio. This is equivalent to almost a third of the entire United States’ carbon emissions in 2021[1][2], or the lifetime emissions of 50 million cars[3].
