Join SSPI Northeast Chapter and New York Space Alliance for the next New York Space Business Roundtable: ESG – Social Factors of the New Space Economy Wednesday, November 17 at 12 Noon.
This month we explore the “S” in ESG: the social factors informing the the Space and Satellite industry and its impact on finance and industry growth. It would be challenging to find an industry which touches the aspirations of humanity more than the space and satellite industry. But as it becomes more diverse and society takes the turns that we have been taking, we ask if we are doing enough on the social scale to accommodate this vision of a single planet which is populated by a single humanity?
As we navigate questions of culture, gender, nationality, mores and morals, how should management respond? What is the value of giving so much emphasis to the “S” of ESG? What will be the impact on the brand and the overall “health” of companies? Will taking the right steps increase value for investors? Are Social Factors universal? Or are they in themselves a new form of control by a few? Is more nuance needed?
