OS shines a light on the environment

To resolve some of the problems caused by climate change, we need to monitor nature. To monitor nature effectively, we need to know where the problems are most likely to be. And to help people live sustainable lives, we need to see where the opportunities are to act. Ordnance Survey’s location intelligence is helping us adapt to and monitor nature, as well as hold governments and businesses to account.

Shining light on the environment

Ordnance Survey’s location intelligence is helping to monitor the environment like never before.

Gathering real-world information about the earth we live in, OS aims to help protect and preserve the environment in the fight against climate change.

The role of geospatial data in the face of the climate crisis

Location data has never been more important in highlighting the impact of climate change. As part of British Government, we use our expertise and experience to enable nations and organisations to respond efficiently and appropriately to climate challenges.
