Developing net zero solutions
To reach net zero we must act now. At the University of Liverpool, we are responding to this challenge.
Our research into the climate of the oceans directly contributed to the IPCC report. Our living lab is exploring the impact of future climates on adaptive repsonses of plants. We are working with organisations to re-imagine our towns and cities and we are developing new innovative materials to enable technologies that don't rely on fossil fuels.
Climate futures research
We are utilising our research strengths to explore the impacts of climate change, develop solutions to environmental challenges and address knowledge gaps.
New climate-related programmes
New BSc degrees in Climate Science and Environmental Geoscience and a new MSc in Sustainable Food Systems launching in September 2022.
Becoming a Net Zero business
Discover how our Zero Carbon Research Institute (ZCRI) has partnered with KFC to create a Zero Carbon Restaurant.
Tackling household air pollution
Building on 15 years of research, our academics are developing WHO guidelines and implementing effective behaviour change strategies to improve air quality in people's homes.
Saving thermal energy with a coat of paint
Thermo-regulating paint can absorb and release heat inside brick buildings to save energy and reduce CO2 emissions.
Improving urban green and blue spaces
Researchers are transforming how communities, organisations and government work together to ensure urban green and blue spaces benefit our people and planet.
Engineering with nature
Researchers are combining artificial intelligence, remote sensing and computer models for the optimum design of coastal protection schemes.
