A Healthy Planet Through Research, Innovation and Advocacy
Climate change is one of the most pressing challenges of our time. With the population rising and pressure on environmental systems intensifying, the need for new ideas, new innovations and new technologies has never been more apparent.
Carnegie Mellon University is a rare institution that combines the strengths necessary to lead the way forward in sustainability science: World-leading strength in social science, environmental science, green science and data science. It has a unique role to play as a producer of new knowledge about pollution, as a developer of new techniques in fields like green chemistry and ecotoxicology, as an epicenter of eco-entrepreneurship, and as an advisor to policy makers on issues where the technical details and processes matter.
