The global impacts of climate change and environmental degradation are amongst the greatest threats to public health, the global economy, and biodiversity.
We are harnessing our high-quality, multi-disciplinary research expertise spanning climate science, emissions reduction, energy transition, food sustainability, air quality, new materials discovery, behaviour insights, risk communication, community engagement, and the development of new sustainable technologies for the future.
Working with collaborators at a global, national, and local scale, we are aligning these strengths to explore the impacts of climate change, develop solutions to environmental challenges and address knowledge gaps in the transition to a lower carbon society.
We undertake funded and commissioned research and consultancy activities, share evidence with policymakers and contribute to international climate negotiations. We also provide regular thought leadership to inform the wider public about the challenges we are facing and our innovative ideas for tackling them.
The climate futures research theme aligns closely with the University’s commitment to sustainability.
