Accurately measuring the impact of changes to our planet

Building confidence in environmental data

Climate change and air quality are amongst the biggest challenges of our time. Policy makers and environmental experts need high quality information to make sound decisions and protect our planet.

We have pioneered techniques to collect data from the world around us, and accurately monitor how it changes over time and in response to different factors. Through robust measurement, we provide confidence in the environmental data which enables effective action to be taken.

We help to inform policy makers working to mitigate the impact of climate change, and support efforts to improve air quality and reduce the risk of pollution on human health.

Take a look at the research we are doing.
