Sustainability and Space: Lessons from Low Earth Orbit

Hear from Chris Geiger, Internal Audit Director at Lockheed Martin, as we explore a new frontier in sustainability and engineering.

Amidst growing concerns over the sustainability of space-based technologies, Chris Geiger explains his firm’s strategy for overcoming the many challenges at this frontier of engineering.

Space-based technologies are an increasingly important part of the global infrastructure and — like all of Earth’s resources — should be managed sustainably. This episode serves as a prime example of how firms can embed long-term thinking, resilience, and adaptability into their corporate structure, and how this can help reduce the impact of risks from climate change and environmental degradation.

Today’s episode will explore:

  • The challenges facing space-based technologies today and in the future
  • The role of resilient engineering design in environmental sustainability
  • The importance of effective governance structures for sustainable business strategies
