Earth Blox was founded in 2019 by a team of remote sensing scientists and PhDs who understood the only way to accelerate the adoption of Earth observation insights in the fight for our planet, was to make it more accessible. The company is headquartered in Edinburgh, Scotland, and employs a remote-first workforce.

Environmental stewardship

We will endeavour to minimise our impact on the environment where possible.

We prioritise working with organisations aligned with our values and ethical stance.

We will also support organisations wishing to transition from unsustainable to more sustainable practices or wishing to reduce their environmental impacts.

Except where we support organisations with the above intents, we will not work with organisations which significantly, directly and knowingly contribute to unsustainable natural resources use, to large natural environmental degradation or to the consistent loss and degradation of endangered species' habitats.
