The Economics of Sustainability

The economy and environment are deeply interlinked in a complex system. We look at how the human economic part of this integrated system can be transformed to be more sustainable. Our Economics of Sustainability Programme is conducted in partnership with Oxford Martin School's Institute of New Economic Thinking (INET) and in collaboration with the Oxford Energy Network.
