The Cleaner Production Promotion Unit (CPPU) conducts research and provides advice, education and training to promote sustainable production and encourage sustainable consumption.
Our research serves to keep us to the fore of sustainable production and consumption (SPC) developments. An inter-disciplinary approach means that issues can be addressed in a multidimensional fashion incorporating engineering, scientific and socio-political perspectives. more information on our research can be viewed here.
Additionally, we work closely with business on commissioned research and advisory services to promote sustainable consumption, cleaner production, industrial ecology and life-cycle thinking. We achieve these objectives and optimise the value of the knowledge and skills developed in our research activities through extensive outreach activities. See our services page for more details.
