Exploring our impact on the World

The future of the planet is at stake – and our research is exploring how we can help protect it

Climate change and green infrastructure. Clean water and sanitation. The impact of plastics and pharmaceuticals. Low carbon design. Ecological systems and biodiversity. These are just a handful of our research areas within the Sustainability and Environment theme.

Led by Professor Gary Fones, our research promotes environmental awareness and we develop techniques for evaluating and improving damage to land and marine ecosystems.
