resources in an urbanizing society
Sustainable Resources for a Growing World Population

At the Leiden-Delft-Erasmus Centre for Sustainability we aim to provide research-based solutions for enhanced resource efficiency taking into consideration the entire product lifecycle, based on four shared research areas: Industrial Ecology and Economics, Circular Business Models and Product Design, Clean technology for Resource Efficiency and Governance, Regulations and Transitions. 

Together with committed stakeholders we actively build bridges between science and society by working together on the challenges and opportunities surrounding the transition towards a Circular Economy.
