UN Sustainable Development Goals

Protecting people and the planet by detecting wildfires, globally

Monitoring the planet's temperature using thermal-infrared satellite imagery. This enables prevention of catastrophic fires, significant CO2 savings, protection of biodiversity and reduction in human tragedies.

Why it matters

Every year, wildfires destroy 30-40 million hectares of vegetation and create CO2 emissions of 7 Gt on average.

Catastrophic wildfires endanger whole ecosystems, cause biodiversity loss and water pollution. Air pollution caused by wildfires accounts for 340,000 deaths annually.

Response time of firefighting efforts is critical. The probability of containing a wildfire successfully is doubled when fire size is 20% smaller.
