About Us

The UK Government has committed to the ambitious task of achieving ‘net zero’ greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

To become a net zero economy and reverse the loss of wild nature, whilst also maintaining food security and building new homes, we must radically alter our relationship between the economy and the environment on which it crucially depends. Our research combines economics and social science with natural and physical sciences to help government and business decision makers better understand the connections between the natural environment and the economy and the full effect of the decisions they make.
