Planet Earth from Space

One of the first actions from our Academic Strategy is to launch a transformational cross-disciplinary programme in research, education and innovation that will help society: ‘Transition to Zero Pollution’.

We will bring together researchers across Imperial to help realise a new low-carbon future by building new partnerships across fundamental science and engineering, systems thinking, human health, new business models and policymaking.

Scientists, engineers, clinicians and economists must work together to come up with innovative technologies and policies that address not just a single problem but the entire system and life cycle.  

The project will tackle global pollution through major new research programmes in:

  • Zero pollution technologies: from developing sustainable raw materials, to changing how we produce things and recycle them
  • Sustainable water-food-energy: ensuring that we use water and produce food and energy in a sustainable way 
  • Environmental health: better our understanding of air and water pollution, their impact on human health, and how to mitigate them
  • Zero pollution economy: developing innovative economic and business models for a sustainable society.
