Sarah Middlemiss

Chief Operating Officer and Head of Space - Ecometrica

Sarah has worked at Ecometrica since 2014 where she came in to manage the space programme – a portfolio of R&D and innovation projects to develop earth observation derived and geospatial services. A recent highlight was her work on Forest2020, funded by the UK Space Agency as part of the International Partnerships Programme (IPP), to help protect and restore up to 300 million hectares of tropical forests by improving forest monitoring in six partner countries through advanced uses of satellite data.


Led by Sarah, Forests 2020 brought together some of the UK’s leading experts on forest monitoring with local experts in Indonesia, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, Belize, Ghana and Kenya to deliver accurate, up-to-date deforestation data generated from satellites to governments, communities, agribusinesses and traders.


As Chief Operating Officer at Ecometrica, Sarah brings together her expertise in global supply chain mapping with her sustainability knowledge to offer clients exceptional products and services.
