Centre for Resilience and Sustainable Development

A transdisciplinary action-research centre in applied resilience science
 

 

Centre for Resilience and Sustainable Development (CRSD) is teamed up with the Møller Institute and Cambridge Sustainable Investment Partners (CSIP) in 2021.

Sustainability is on the top list of global agenda, and it becomes even more critical after the disruption of the pandemic. With the exponential growth in technology, the world is shifting from industrial economy to modern economy where the major systems are changing, such as transport system, power system, and food system to name a few. 

With the integrated and interwoven complexity of connections among our society, environment, and economy, it is imperative for the government and business leaders to apply system thinking when it comes to policy and decision making, to align with ESG goals and avoid unintended consequences, and furthermore, to make decisions that will bring sustainable growth in all areas of our lives.

From the perspective of trust and cooperation as key to solving global challenges, we break down the silos between sectors, harness new theories of change and consider legacy effects using evidence, so that new systems can be introduced. By blending system dynamics with political and economic analysis and rigorously developed business cases, we help achieve lasting change. We have helped over 160 companies and over 20 countries through our cutting-edge research and capacity building efforts.

 

Our research enables:

  • Governments and civil sector foster innovation and enterprise to deliver social and economic benefits consistently.
  • Companies to develop life-changing products and services, build better businesses, create meaningful jobs, and improve the environment for the future collectively.
  • Decision makers to reinvent policies and practices to facilitate their institutions to move to higher sustainable and productive activities.
