Environmental impact of diets
We know a poor diet can have severe outcomes on our waistline but they can also have important impacts on the environment too.
FutureFeed cattle feed
A livestock seaweed feed supplement could help global food security and fight climate change by reducing powerful greenhouse gas emissions.
Together with global partners, we're providing the data needed to improve the livelihoods of livestock farmers in developing countries.
SDGs for business
CSIRO is partnering with agribusiness to deliver the Sustainable Development Goal outcomes for Australia and the globe.
The SIAGI project
We are working with Australian and international partner organisations on a project which aims to achieve socially inclusive and sustainable agricultural intensification in West Bengal and Bangladesh.
Global marine pollution
We're taking on the world’s largest plastic pollution survey, working with countries across the globe to apply science to reduce the amount of litter entering our oceans.
We have achieved a better understanding of how sediments and nutrients reach the Great Barrier Reef and offered ways to mitigate their impact.
Impacts on the Great Barrier Reef
Our scientists are working hard to understand and find innovative ways to improve the quality of water reaching the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area (the Reef).
Monitoring and measurement
Measuring the movement of water, soil and nutrients is important for understanding the influence of land management on the environment and the cost effectiveness of modifying management practices.
Circular Economy and Waste Management
As the national science agency, CSIRO is focused on solving the greatest challenges through innovative science and technology. This includes ensuring we have a resilient and valuable environment, are moving towards clean energy and resources, and supporting the growth of future industries around these goals.
A circular economy roadmap for plastics, tyres, glass and paper in Australia
There are national and international benefits for creating a circular economy in Australia.
Woomera radioactive waste
We are investigating the best options to prepare waste material stored at the Woomera Test Range in South Australia for transfer and acceptance at the proposed National Radioactive Waste Management Facility (NRWMF).
Sustainable Consumption and Production
We analyse global-scale materials stocks and flows, develop integrated assessments, and combine with policy analysis, mechanisms to accelerate innovation in cities and ways to influence consumer behaviour. By working across multiple scales, we provide a whole-of-systems view of the sustainability of our built environment and how to improve it.
Urban green infrastructure
We have collaborated with urban researchers and practitioners to set a national research agenda for green infrastructure in our cities.
Heating and cooling
Simple changes to the way to use lighting, heating and cooling in your home can help you save energy. This guide provides some easy energy-saving tips.
Urban Living Labs
With the urban environment facing a variety of environmental, social, economic and technological challenges, Urban Living Lab offers a new way for researchers, industry, community and government to co-innovate; moving our cities into a more liveable, sustainable and resilient future.
