Innovating solutions and strategies to address environmental challenges.

Environmental solutions encompass scientific, technological, and policy approaches to address environmental threats to human and ecosystem health. These solutions also chart a pathway towards a sustainable and equitable future. The Center for the Environment promotes environmental solutions research in air and water quality, biotechnology, agricultural practices, the built environment, and decarbonization of energy and industrial systems. Environmental solutions emerge from diverse fields, including but not limited to engineering, natural and social sciences, social work and policy, and architecture and design. The Center examines environmental solutions across timescales and in systems spanning natural, managed, and engineered environments.
