London Economics partners with Argans to tackle climate change

December 8, 2020

London Economics is pleased to announce a new partnership with satellite-based Earth Observation specialists, Argans, to develop commercially-focused products under the theme of ‘Earth Observation and Climate Change’ as part of the UK Space Agency’s £7 million National Space Innovation Programme (NSIP).

London Economics’ and Argan’s project will assess the commercial and technical feasibility of using Earth Observation to monitor total carbon emissions for national accounting and the carbon offset market and to provide low-cost intelligence on how and where governments and others can most cost-effectively intervene to leverage wetlands as a source of carbon sequestration.

London Economics’ role will focus on market analysis, user requirements and user engagement activities to support the commercial development of the project’s products.
