ESG Report 2023

We have embarked on a new journey, challenging ourselves to ask not only what our responsibility as a company is, but what more can we do to impact the planet and help us all collectively achieve the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. SES has developed a purpose led ESG strategy aligned with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals which is inextricably linked to our business success. We are focused on 4 key pillars - Sustainable Space, Climate Action, Diversity and Inclusion, and Critical Human Needs.
