Enabling Sustainability 

Creating more sustainable places, communities and economies.

With research expertise developed over two decades, the research teams have achieved significant recognition. The Institute's consultancy and business services are making a significant impact, and through established networks, provide a knowledge base that has clear benefit to its partners.

Work undertaken in social policy, low carbon building, materials, green computing, renewable energy and sustainable infrastructure places the Institute in a lead position, shaping the developed and developing world. The Institute’s field trials and work with communities are having a direct impact on the policy and regulation that will pave the way to a low carbon built environment.

The practices developed are being adopted across Europe and impacting on the way we test and monitor buildings to ensure performance. Feedback from the research has resulted in new industry standards, taking a step closer to the zero carbon and low impact solution.
