Satelligence on how satellite data can drive the right sourcing decisions
25 Apr 19
Niels Wielaard and Ian Welsh
Niels Wielaard, founder, Satelligence, discusses with Ian Welsh how using remote sensing data can help brands with tropical commodity supply chains reduce deforestation and other supply chain risks, and how such data can be used for helping farm-level development.
Wielaard argues that palm oil is a sector leading the way in using satellite technology, particularly through establishing clear roadmaps to monitoring entire supply chains. The landscape approach and business collaboration, he says, is how real impact at scale can be achieved.
Satelligence was a sponsor of Innovation Forum's recent sustainable landscapes event in London.
