Corporate Values

Skyrora places education and sustainability at the heart of our core values.

We’re committed to reducing our direct impact on the environment by actively managing our waste, emissions and consumption of natural resources.
To play a positive role in society, we’ve built a culture that promotes employee volunteering, through STEM activities. We actively support local businesses, schools and the communities in which we operate.
Procurement and Supply Chain
We seek out the most sustainable procurement route for the life of a project. We aim for the majority of our supply chain to be with local companies and contractors to reduce our carbon footprint.
We are investing into ways to make the space sector more sustainable. This includes research and development on our projects such as Ecosene – a version of RP1 and other fuels made from recycled plastics. We recognise our responsibility to do business in a manner that protects and improves the environment for our future generations.
