The Institute for Sustainability was established as an independent charity in 2009 to support cross sector collaboration and innovation. The Institute has since provided an effective and valued channel for innovation and knowledge transfer, pursuing its charitable aim of promoting sustainable development.
After a period of initial development and growth, changing grant funding arrangements and certain unanticipated issues have led to financial difficulties which, with great regret, have forced the Trustees to place the Institute into Administration.
BRE has acquired key assets from the Institute allowing its positive legacy to endure and continue to develop. A number of staff have moved to BRE and will be catalysts for bringing further beneficial impacts to society and the environment.
