In each respective Area of Advance there is sustainable development as a constant living force. There, we are gathering skills and power, in collaboration with other actors in society, to tackle the large and complex societal challenges we are facing. To see how Chalmers is working on sustainable development by theme, follow the links to the respective Area of Advance. Many of the centres linked to Areas of Advance have a clear sustainability profile.
Chalmers invested early in gathering and alerting researchers with an interest in environmental and sustainable development. For example, with the Centre for Environment and Sustainability

. As a result of this, there is strong general sustainability research at Chalmers, not least at the Department of Energy & Environment
