Protecting your business, people and the planet
Our passion for sustainability runs deep. So deep we already worked on forests and satellites 25 years ago, when hardly anyone cared about such things. We are keen to share this passion with you too. Satelligence simplifies how to prove your sustainability performance, from farmer to consumer.
Bring a committed team, we take care of the rest!
We strive to make sustainable production mainstream, ensuring a profitable, equitable and climate positive future. Protecting your business, people and the planet. With relevant insights based on consistent and accurate data.
Satelligence tracks crops, ecosystems, risks and supply chain assets in one place, so you can confidently measure and report the progress you need.
“Inspired by my great grandmother’s stories about her life growing up in Indonesia, I developed a fascination for tropical forest landscapes and its people around the world.
Fresh from Wageningen University I traveled the world for over two decades, to study how new and untapped science & technology designed with humans in mind could halt deforestation and prove sustainable production.”
Experiencing both the impact of environmental destruction and the hopeful hardships of local people striving to make a decent living made a lasting impression.
”It led me to pioneer sustainable sourcing monitoring systems and ultimately launch Satelligence. I have been fortunate to learn from so many people over the years and believe in the power of partnerships driving change to make a meaningful impact.
I invite you to join too – let’s turn commodity risk into an opportunity!”
