Aalto Sustainability Hub

Aalto Sustainability Hub is committed to building a sustainable society driven by innovation and entrepreneurship.

Complex sustainability challenges like climate change, loss of biodiversity and global inequality call for ground-breaking and societally impactful research. To answer these complex challenges, we provide interdisciplinary knowledge about innovative solutions and transition paths that enhance sustainable development. Our transdisciplinary ethos inspires us to co-create solution proposals together with partners from different sectors of society.

We are creating a world-class research and learning environment focused on sustainability and circular economy. Our aim is to bring new understanding of the systemic solutions needed for a sustainable future.
