Welcome to the SRI

Sustainability Research Institute logo

Established in 2001, the SRI was one of the first dedicated sustainability research institutes in the UK and we have since built an excellent international reputation by applying our groundbreaking research and development in the real world.
Our work focuses on a range of emerging research fields and pressing urban and rural sustainability challenges and is centred on three key themes:

  • Green infrastructure - spanning areas such peatland ecology and conservation, the design and monitoring of urban green infrastructure and invertebrate conservation
  • Resource Management - encompassing materials engineering, energy efficiency and the circular economy.
  • Sustainable Society - covering adaptive governance and community engagement and asset management.

The SRI is a prime example of UEL's tradition of cross-disciplinary knowledge transfer. Working with partners across the UK and around the world, our work addresses the critical issues for creating more resilient urban and rural communities.

Our results orientated innovation expertise, state of art test sites and facilities, and cross-sectoral networks allow us to work with a diverse range of partners across different scales, disciplines, communities and landscape contexts.
