Centre for Sustainable Environments

Working across three of the four University of Bradford Faculties, we are leading on interdisciplinary approaches that integrate technological, organisational and societal solutions to meet contemporary environmental challenges.

The Centre is home to a dedicated team of specialists, and champions four main themes:

These industry themes address directly the 21st century challenges facing the civil engineering profession – reducing waste and developing more sustainable construction materials.

Stakeholder engagement and partnership working

Our team has an established record of accomplishment in providing support to the business and public sectors, as well as a long history of working in collaboration with a wide range of academic partners. We pride ourselves on our ability to turn 'ideas into action' and look forward to using our expertise to help you meet your future needs. 

The Centre's specialists in public and stakeholder engagement have a well-established record of accomplishment in facilitating dialogue and reconciling agendas between public institutions, such as local authorities, the private sector, and members of the public. 

Our strength lies in the fact that we recognise that working in partnership can often achieve more than any organisation working in isolation.

Our experience has involved both researching the background to public / stakeholder engagement initiatives and post-hoc evaluation, so that future initiatives can be focused more effectively.
