Facilitating clean, resilient and sustainable futures

Our members have been strongly committed to scientific research and discourse.

Our vision is to be recognised as a leading scientific environmental research institute that influences and expands new knowledge in the era of the Anthropocene.

We recognise interdependencies of human and natural systems, and seek to learn from the past to inform sustainable lives in the future. To do this we collaborate with a range of national and international partners and organisations to deliver and promulgate research programs and initiatives that have impact.
