GHGSat is a Canadian SME established in 2011 as a private-sector solution to climate change. The company is the global leader in the high-resolution satellite-based remote sensing of greenhouse gas emissions from any source in the world, enabling stakeholders in the energy, resource, power generation, agricultural, waste management, and sustainability sectors to make informed environmental decisions. GHGSat’s constellation of made-in-Ontario satellites currently consists of eight spacecraft, the first of which was launched in September 2020 and the newest three satellites launched in April 2023. No other commercial or government satellite constellation is specifically designed for detecting and quantifying greenhouse gas emissions from point sources as small as individual facilities, providing unique emissions data and intelligence to businesses, governments, regulators, and investors worldwide.


Eric Choi is director of business development at GHGSat. Over the course of his career, he has held positions of increasing technical and managerial responsibility in both the aviation and space sectors, the latter including work on QEYSSat (Quantum Encryption and Science Satellite), the Meteorology (MET) payload on the NASA Phoenix Mars Lander, the Canadarm2 on the International Space Station, the RADARSAT-1 Earth-observation satellite, and the MOPITT (Measurements of Pollution on the Troposphere) instrument. He holds a B.A.Sc in engineering science and an M.A.Sc in aerospace engineering, both from the University of Toronto and an MBA from York University.
