‘Kayrros is the world leader in turning raw data from satellites and other sources into actionable insights that can lead to powerful climate solutions.
‘The TIME award is not only a tribute for Kayrros, but also a strong message that our cutting-edge technologies can help the world find its way out of our climate conundrum.
‘We are convinced that meaningful climate action begins with having access to precise, verifiable, independent data and insights, and that’s what we strive to provide to businesses, governments, investors and regulators.
‘We’re grateful to TIME for recognising our work.’

He singled out the European Space Agency (ESA), the French National Centre of Space Studies (CNES), National Centre of Scientific Research (CNRS), Climate and Environmental Sciences Laboratory (LSCE), and the Centre Borelli research unit.
He also spoke of his gratitude for the financial support and confidence Kayrros has received from its investors.
