Dual Horizons: Ensuring Sustainability in Orbit and on Earth

The session will address the dual challenges of maintaining the long-term usability of outer space and mitigating the environmental impacts associated with space industry activities on Earth. It will also explore the roles of various stakeholders, including international bodies, governments, and industry leaders, in collaboratively advancing these sustainability goals. Through this discussion, we aim to highlight the economic implications of sustainable practices in the space sector, identifying new opportunities for growth and competitiveness in the global market, and establishing clear, transparent metrics for measuring and reporting on sustainability efforts to prevent greenwashing and ensure accountability.
