Organisation profile

At the Sustainable Consumption Institute (SCI) we focus on how current forms of social and economic activity, and how they are constantly changing, shape the pursuit of sustainability. These include shifts in business practice and structure, intensified inequalities, social and technical innovation, global migration, novel social identities and practices, and political polarisation.

The SCI works as a close-knit, interdisciplinary community of critical social science scholars at various career stages to carry out this research agenda. We do so across diverse empirical contexts and deploy a diverse range of social science methodologies. We also do so with a focus on developing the work and careers of sustainability-oriented researchers working across the social sciences.

The SCI influences thinking on sustainable consumption within and beyond academia by developing meaningful relationships through long term partnerships and collaborative projects, as well as leading and participating in wider knowledge sharing activities through seminars, conferences and networks.
