At the core of the Sustainability theme is research that enables society to undertake activities and developments, such that they meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.


Our Sustainability research includes: developing a better understanding of the world's resources; understanding environmental phenomena and how they impact on society; developing understanding of the behaviours and attitudes that shape the way people interact with their environment; and the development of technologies, processes and models that seek to improve our ability to live sustainably and well.
