IEE is actively engaged in research to advance thinking about sustainability and triple bottom line issues. The field of sustainability is new enough that many unanswered questions present themselves when we examine how we can transition entrenched behaviors and institutions to operate within environmental limitations and to promote social equity and well-being. For example, how can we transition to low-carbon cities? How do we address the field of sustainability with the same level of academic rigor that we apply to other fields? How do we build a knowledge base for sustainability? These are just some of the questions that IEE is pursuing.
