“The will and commitment to operate in a sustainable way is important to any industry. However, it is much more so for the space industry as we are beginning to operate in a pristine environment. We find it highly important to lead by example and show with real action and through our products how sustainable operation can be implemented in the space sector“, says Roope Takala, Chairman of the Board of Aurora Propulsion Technologies.

Aurora Propulsion Technologies is dedicated to providing the technical solutions needed by space mission to be performed in a sustainable way. The technical solutions however focus only on some aspects of sustainability, while the topic is broader when looked at comprehensively. Aurora has published the Space Sustainability White Paper to discuss all the different aspects of sustainability, from the traditional sustainability applicable to all industries to the in-orbit sustainability we are tackling.
