Research from science to society

We conduct applied research for ecologically, economically and socially sustainable growth in business and society. Research and development is the foundation of our operations. It represents half of our total activity, alongside our commissioned work. With a wide range of expertise, we work across the entire field of sustainability and our research ranges from traditional environmental science to economics, behavioural science and social science.
