Welcome from the Co-Directors
Welcome to the website of the Grantham Institute at Imperial College London. We are hugely encouraged in our roles as Co-Directors of the Grantham Institute to see the vast range of climate and environment-related work going on here at Imperial and the very high quality of the people, both researchers and students. Their ability and enthusiasm in making a better tomorrow shines through in so many areas.
- Professor Joanna Haigh and Professor Martin Siegert, Co-Directors of the Grantham Institute
To contribute materially to credible and effective UK and international action on climate change.
"...the efforts of leading research organisations like the Grantham Institute are vitally important to understand and respond to the scale, pace and potential implications of climate change" - Jeremy and Hannelore Grantham
The Grantham Institute's mandate is to drive forward climate and environment related research, translating this into real world impact and communicating our knowledge to help shape decision-making.
In 2014 the scope of the Grantham Institute broadened from a sole focus on climate change research to encompass environmental science and engineering research from across Imperial.
The Institute is already integrating researchers and capabilities from all areas of the College necessary to tackle the challenges of climate change and the environment, through which we will work to offer practical scientific and technical knowledge of the highest quality. The Institute is supported by a team of experts who provide authoritative analysis and assessment of research outputs, communicating it in a policy-relevant way to decision makers.
The Grantham Foundation for the Protection of the Environment also provides support to our partner institutes at the London School of Economics (Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment) and the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore (Divecha Centre for Climate Change).
