Climate change is one of the biggest challenges of our time. The Airbus Foundation Environment pillar is created to help address this challenge, mitigate the impact of climate change, and fully align with Airbus' sustainability ambition.
A top-level commitment
With its Environment pillar, the Airbus Foundation aims to join forces with the Connected Conservation Foundation to help preserve wildlife and natural ecosystems by sharing technologies and resources. Airbus’ high-resolution satellite imagery combined with the on-the-ground digital technologies of the Connected Conservation Foundation, help protect threatened species and stop habitat degradation.
The Airbus Foundation also provides imagery from the Pléiades and SPOT Earth resources satellites to the Global Logistic Cluster to help assess the impact of cyclones, hurricanes and flooding in Asia, Africa, and South America.
Supporting our partners
In close collaboration with its existing and new non-governmental organisation (NGO) partners, the Airbus Foundation also contributes to mitigate the impact of climate change by providing NGO partners with products and services in support of:
- Climate change mitigation and monitoring, assessing the impact and evolution of climate change, monitoring the restoration of nature and biodiversity via wildlife and forest monitoring and restoration;
- Climate change adaptation and disaster prevention, hand-in-hand with the Airbus Foundation’s humanitarian activities, to assess areas prone to natural disasters, and support preparedness and capacity building of vulnerable environments and societies;
- Minimising the environmental impact of human beings, improving and monitoring resource management with such activities as wetland monitoring, crop management, water use monitoring, and anti-poaching.
