Our environmental impact research areas
Climate change and variability affect almost every aspect of our lives. We are tackling the climate change challenge by improving climate knowledge and services, developing low emissions technologies and helping to build resilient communities in Australia, our region and the world.
We are working to help Australian's reduce emissions. We focus on science and technology to quantify, reduce and capture emissions from our energy, agriculture and lifestyle industries.
We are developing more efficient and sustainable fossil fuel technologies and helping industry to safely access and extract Australia's rich resources, including oil, gas and coal.
Plastics and recycling
Our research is helping society to do more with less by finding novel ways to recycle existing products and materials for new uses.
Our work is enabling our society to build a more sustainable future, helping people and our planet respond to our shared challenges.
