Sustainability in the built environment

Our research on sustainability addresses aspects of environmental, social and economic sustainability - from the psychology of pro-environmental behaviour to smart cities to sustainable development.

Overview

The School's sustainability research theme cuts across the four other themes of our research. The term ‘sustainability’ encompasses a broad range of topics relating to environmental, social and economic objectives.

Research interests within this theme are similarly broad, and include sustainable behaviour, climate change economics, building information modelling (BIM), sustainable cities and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. We apply a variety of disciplinary perspectives to sustainability-related questions including environmental psychology, management, economics and construction research.

Resources

Our resources available here are divided into two categories:

  • Research summaries - short summaries of research findings for the interested non-academic reader
  • Research papers and reports - peer-reviewed research published in academic journals or conference proceedings, industry reports and working papers on projects in progress
