The Bristol SDG Alliance brings together a range of organisations and individuals to raise awareness of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. The Alliance are using the goals as a framework for Bristol's future sustainable and resilient development and enabling Bristol to monitor its own progress.  

What we do and why we have impact

Our researchers apply their knowledge and expertise to help cities around the globe become more sustainable - particularly in terms of their energy use, emissions, biodiversity and food production.
