Space Environmental Sustainability

Space Centre Australia aims to establish a measurable action of space environment sustainability within its scope of operations.

With this intention, our policy formally supports our vision for the Australian and International Space Industry.

Space Centre Australia’s sustainability policy applies to all our employees, their decisions, and their activities.

“SPACE CENTRE AUSTRALIA’S SUSTAINABILITY PLEDGE IS TO, BY 2026, REMOVE EQUIVALENT WEIGHT OF SPACE DEBRIS PER OBJECT LAUNCHED FROM our facility INTO EARTH’S ORBIT.”

The wellbeing of ourselves, and of our natural systems, are dependent on each other. To move in a sustainable direction, our actions must be always informed by this.

While there are absolute limits in our world, it must be appreciated that within these, we have endless opportunities for innovation.

Sustainability is a set of principles and a process, not an end point to be achieved. To this end, the processes which drive our decision-making are as important as the decisions themselves.

While our sustainability policy contains some universally applicable elements, it still requires tailoring to our specific circumstances.

Space Centre Australia embraces sustainable practices in:

Biodiversity Environmental Management
