Established in 1992, the Cleaner Production Promotion Unit is a multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary research group based in UCC’s School of Engineering and an affiliate centre of the university’s Environmental Research Institute. The group conducts engaged research focused on the theme of society, sustainability and energy. 

The inter-disciplinarity of its research is greatly facilitated by the diverse academic background of its staff and research associates, which includes sociology, human geography, psychology, political science, architecture, environmental science and engineering.
