GlobalTrust utilises state-of-the-art satellites, geospatial data and advanced analytics to derive environmental assessments and baseline reports about your operations or projects, helping your organisation with your planning and impact assessments.

We use near real-time identification to alert you of pollution and other associated industrial activity indicators with operational monitoring. We can assist with your policy creation by monitoring the land use and change over time to help you understand how the environment and biodiversity of an area have changed.

GlobalTrust provides up-to-date environmental monitoring of corporate operations and the effects on surrounding wildlife and biodiversity. We can monitor the changes in biodiversity​, vegetation degradation and deforestation​, the quality of the water and the impact of raw materials.

Vegetation Degradation

We monitor vegetation health around industrial facilities through vegetation indices applied to the collected satellite data.

These images above show two different types of vegetation analysis that can be used to define and separate different vegetation types within the image and then assess how they are affected over time.

Automatic change detection helps our clients to understand illegal deforestation connected to human production activities. We provide our clients with updates and alerts of potential unregulated deforestation activities across wide areas.

We provide rapid situational awareness by viewing both historical and new imagery, and we can overlay additional data to contextualise alerts or offer other environmental impact intelligence.

On the left you can see a multi-temporal change detection radar image showing deforestation in northern Brazil.

GlobalTrust uses historical and current satellite imagery with other geospatial datasets to provide intelligence about the extraction or growing of raw materials. ​This information provides insights into the location of critical products along a supply chain as a condition of the environment and local communities.​

Growing and extracting fibres like cotton requires massive land use and impacts the environment and the local communities. Certifying sustainably produced raw materials is an excellent way of improving the conditions, yet evidence and trusted data often need to be included to validate sustainable practices.

We can provide insights into the location of critical products along a supply chain, the condition of the environment and local communities:

  • Evaluating agricultural areas if cotton is responsibly grown
  • Monitoring of fibre growth cycles over seasons
  • Detecting change in biodiversity or environmental damage linked to agricultural activities.


You can see below a set of change detection images showing the change in vegetation in an area between an initial two year baseline period and a following two year period
