The UCL Institute for Sustainable Resources (ISR) generates knowledge in the globally sustainable use of natural resources and trains the future leaders of this field. Our definition of resources is broad, and our research approach is equally inclusive, bringing together experts from across UCL. We are part of The Bartlett: UCL’s global faculty of the built environment.
