Helping millions adapt to climate change.
Our mission is to use cutting-edge technology, including satellite data, artificial intelligence, and data fusion, to help communities and organisations around the world reduce their risk of disasters and adapt to the impacts of climate change.
We believe that by leveraging the power of technology, we can empower communities to become more resilient and better prepared for the challenges of the future. Through our innovative solutions, we aim to help communities and organisations reduce their vulnerability to disasters, anticipate and mitigate potential risks, and build resilience in the face of ongoing and emerging threats.
Ultimately, our goal is to help create a safer and more sustainable world for all.
Roxane, disaster risk reduction specialist, and Alex, natural hazard specialist, were two passionate professionals with a shared vision of using technology to make the world a safer place. They had both grown up in the Alps, an area prone to climate change and natural disasters, and had seen firsthand the devastating impact these events could have on communities.
Determined to find a way to mitigate the risks of disasters and help communities adapt to the changing climate, they built a team with combined expertise in disaster risk reduction, satellite data, artificial intelligence, and data fusion. It was a risky move and the team spent countless hours, experimenting with different techniques and algorithms.
From this innovative work, a company was born: Geoneon, "new earth".
As Geoneon grew and its technology was adopted by communities around the world, the founding team couldn't help but feel a sense of pride and accomplishment. They had achieved their dream of using their skills and expertise to make a positive impact on the world, and they knew they were just getting started.
United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. These goals are interconnected and address the global challenges we face, including poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace, and justice. At Geoneon, we recognise the importance of the SDGs and are committed to contributing to their achievement through our work. By leveraging our expertise in geospatial data analysis and technology, we are actively working towards making a positive impact on the environment and society.

The company recognises that promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion is essential to achieving SDG 10 and creating a more just and equitable world.
SDG 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities
Geoneon addresses SDG 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities by developing solutions that leverage spatial data to make cities more efficient and sustainable. The company’s tools help to improve land-use and infrastructure planning, while its disaster risk management solutions aid in creating more resilient cities.
Additionally, Geoneon’s near-real-time monitoring technology enables the tracking of climatic indicators, which can inform decisions for creating healthier and more livable cities. By providing cities with the information they need to make data-driven decisions, Geoneon is contributing to the creation of sustainable, inclusive, and resilient communities.
SDG 13: Climate Action
Geoneon addresses SDG 13: Climate Action by developing technology-driven solutions for climate change adaptation and mitigation. Geoneon's risk index and susceptibility mapping platform helps communities prepare and respond to climatic hazards, such as wildfire, an increasingly frequent and intense natural hazard due to climate change.
Geoneon also offers land-use monitoring services to enable better planning, mitigation selection and climatic indicators tracking.
Geoneon helps clients meet climate goals and commitments by integrating climate risk considerations into supply chain management and infrastructure planning, and promoting renewable energy adoption.
Our Pledge for Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion
At Geoneon, we pledge to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in all aspects of our business. This means actively seeking out and hiring talent from diverse backgrounds, creating a welcoming and inclusive work environment, and continuously educating ourselves on how to be better allies and advocates for underrepresented groups.

We are proud to be Tasmanian
It isn’t easy here. It never has been. People said it was impossible, and for too long we believed it. This is why, for Tasmanians, good enough is never good enough. We work harder, we follow our obsessions, we support one another, and we protect what makes this place different.
Being Tasmanian is the quiet pursuit of the extraordinary.
