The Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment was established in October 2008 to find ways of cutting fossil fuel use worldwide without impeding any country’s economic growth. The School is also helping to foster sustainable living so that all of us enjoy health and lifestyle advances without increasing environmental damage.

Led by Professor Sir David King, the School will be a unique catalyst for innovative science, progressive decision making and sustainable economic progress.
