Pledge by Space Companies

TAMPA, FLORIDA — By 2030, ten firms and organizations from the space sector have pledged to develop specific solutions to reduce in-orbit debris.

The Net Zero Space charter includes signatories such as Eutelsat, a French satellite fleet operator, Arianespace, a launch service provider, and Planet, a US-based Earth photography company. The initiative was unveiled on November 12 during the Paris Peace Forum in France.

“Currently, there are around 4,700 operational satellites in orbit,” adds Arianespace CEO Stéphane Isral, “and this figure might climb to more than 25,000 by the end of the decade.”

“Hence, we must immediately address the issue faced in our responsibilities associated with rising use of space to protect humanity’s long-term perks.”
