Mobilising King’s research and expertise to respond to the climate and biodiversity crisis

The world is facing an unprecedented challenge: the global economy must bring emissions down 45% by 2030, and to net zero by mid-Century, to avert the worst impacts of climate change and to preserve a liveable planeti.

Agile research that works to understand, inform and critique societal transitions towards environmental and social sustainability, as they happen, is vital.

Governments, industry and the third sector need comprehensive, timely knowledge to guide choices for fair and just transitions to sustainability, integrating expertise across technologies, economics, cultural and social trends, international competition, security, politics, public health, public attitudes and regulation.

To deliver this, we are mobilising cross-faculty expertise to focus on a next generation of sustainability research that connects the capabilities, insights, technologies and impacts needed to move beyond advocacy of problems towards tangible solutions at scale.

By scaling and deepening our interdisciplinary climate research and focusing on the pressing challenges of climate change mitigation and adaptation, we will generate actionable insight that will shape the future of our societies and our planet.
