We drive forward projects and research that focus on sustainable issues such as biofuels, ethical training and sustainable new build residential developments.
Providing a one-stop shop for business
Working across all areas of the university, we bring together sustainability experts and expertise. We act as a focal point for businesses and organisations who are interested in our broad ranging sustainability knowledge and ongoing research and development work.
A catalyst for new projects and opportunities
Sustainability projects often demand the involvement of experts across a variety of fields and Schools. For example, the development of biofuels needs engineers who can provide a technical focus, scientists who understand the chemistry of fuel and professionals with knowledge of supply chain, finance and socio-economic issues.
Through knitting Schools together and forming teams of experts from different fields, we are able to deliver a diverse range of sustainability projects. After all not many organisations can boast our extensive breadth and depth of knowledge, and can call upon the expertise and experience of the Natural Resources Institute.
