How we help clients reduce their carbon footprint

Our IPAS project (Interruption Prevention Alert Service) will support our customers carbon reduction goals. IPAS is an insight service based on a sustainable approach, using satellite technology to identify and monitor 3rd party interference near critical assets. This invaluable service is a truly innovative solution for operational management and a vital tool for risk management to client assets. Current methods of monitoring assets include regular flying programmes and line walking which are both expensive and generate a large carbon footprint. Utility organisations are looking to new ways of managing this growing risk and are supporting MGISS in the development of IPAS as an insight service based on a more sustainable approach using an eye in the sky to track 3rd party interference in close proximity to critical assets.

We have collaborated with ECO-I, John Moores University, to create a carbon footprint calculator to clearly identify areas to be improved in our organisation and our processes – this is also integrated into MGISS solutions.

We help organisations reduce their carbon footprint and view a direct comparison from where they were – to where they are now, demonstrating their progress and commitment to sustainability. This is particularly useful when surveying on site, with the outcome being reduced necessary site visits and therefore reduction in carbon emissions.

Internal Management

With ISO 14001 in place we aim to reduce our environmental footprint. We strive to use less energy – through energy efficiency improvements in our product life cycle. Additionally we aim to reduce negative impacts to the environment – we monitor and control our processes in areas which could affect the ecosystem.


We pride ourselves on the strength of our partnerships working with industry leaders such as Leica, EOS, and Esri.

We have also formed a sustainability partnership with Trees for Life. Trees for Life (TFL) are a multi-award-winning conservation charity reintroducing wildlife to the Scottish Highlands.

We have leveraged our expertise to train the TFL team in all aspects of GIS, including supporting accurate field data capture and how to utilise geospatial data to better understand our natural resources.


"Our Trees for Life vision is of a revitalised wild forest in the Scottish Highlands, providing space for wildlife to flourish and communities to thrive and our partnership with MGISS will continue to support our work in restoring the globally unique Caledonian forest. Geospatial data will help us understand our natural resources and identify opportunities that will benefit both our landscape and local communities"
