GHGSat is on a roll having raised more funds and looks to pad its lead in the commercial monitoring of global emissions from small satellites.

Recently GHGSat announced it had raised US$10M in a Series A2 financing. The funds bring to $20M GHGSat has raised to date, including funds from the Alberta and federal governments.

It’s also been over two years now that GHGSat’s first satellite, Claire, was launched. In that time a lot has changed politically, especially when talking about carbon taxes. What hasn’t changed is the need to monitor global emissions. And this week the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change also issued a dire warning.

My guest this week on the SpaceQ podcast is Stephane Germain, CEO of GHGSat. Stephane is also a member of the Space Advisory Board and he’ll provide us a brief update on the Advisory Board’s activities.

As you’ll hear from Stephane, regardless of the political climate, monitoring global emissions by commercial companies like his isn’t going away, in fact, the business case and businesses in this space segment are getting ready to take-off.

Listen in.
