FutureFeed livestock feed
A livestock seaweed feed supplement could help global food security and fight climate change by reducing powerful greenhouse gas emissions.
We’re helping build Vietnam’s innovation capacity and deliver agriculture and food research to market.
Environmental impact of diets
We know a poor diet can have severe outcomes on our waistline but they can also have important impacts on the environment too.
Exploring alternative future food systems
Together with partners, we are improving capacity to simulate complex interactions in the global food system.
A pilot tool that allows Australian farmers to evaluate, benchmark and communicate the environmental footprint of their production.
Global Burden of Animal Diseases
We're part of a global consortium that aims to quantify the societal impacts of livestock diseases to better inform future investments in animal health.
Aquatic foods in healthy and sustainable diets
We are analysing how aquatic foods could further contribute to healthy and sustainable diets around the world.
Labour impacts on agriculture
The supply and quality of labour affects the productivity, profitability and long-term sustainability of all agricultural commodities. Recent analysis suggests the horticulture sector is particularly vulnerable in this area.
Sustainable weed, pest and disease control
Building economic and environmentally sustainable and durable pest, weed and disease control throughout food and fibre production systems.
Together with global partners, we're providing the data needed to improve the livelihoods of livestock farmers in developing countries.
Global marine pollution
We're taking on the world’s largest plastic pollution survey, working with countries across the globe to apply science to reduce the amount of litter entering our oceans.
We have achieved a better understanding of how sediments and nutrients reach the Great Barrier Reef and offered ways to mitigate their impact.
Impacts on the Great Barrier Reef
Our scientists are working hard to understand and find innovative ways to improve the quality of water reaching the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area (the Reef).
Monitoring and measurement
Measuring the movement of water, soil and nutrients is important for understanding the influence of land management on the environment and the cost effectiveness of modifying management practices.
New oil spill response technology
Oil spills can cause significant environmental damage. We have developed new oil spill response technology that focuses on removing small oil droplets. And it all starts off with the humble domestic sponge ...
Circular Economy and Waste Management
As the national science agency, CSIRO is focused on solving the greatest challenges through innovative science and technology. This includes ensuring we have a resilient and valuable environment, are moving towards clean energy and resources, and supporting the growth of future industries around these goals.
A circular economy roadmap for plastics, tyres, glass and paper in Australia
There are national and international benefits for creating a circular economy in Australia.
Woomera radioactive waste
We are investigating the best options to prepare waste material stored at the Woomera Test Range in South Australia for transfer and acceptance at the proposed National Radioactive Waste Management Facility (NRWMF).
Sustainable Consumption and Production
We analyse global-scale materials stocks and flows, develop integrated assessments, and combine with policy analysis, mechanisms to accelerate innovation in cities and ways to influence consumer behaviour. By working across multiple scales, we provide a whole-of-systems view of the sustainability of our built environment and how to improve it.
Urban green infrastructure
We have collaborated with urban researchers and practitioners to set a national research agenda for green infrastructure in our cities.
Heating and cooling
Simple changes to the way to use lighting, heating and cooling in your home can help you save energy. This guide provides some easy energy-saving tips.
Urban Living Labs
With the urban environment facing a variety of environmental, social, economic and technological challenges, Urban Living Lab offers a new way for researchers, industry, community and government to co-innovate; moving our cities into a more liveable, sustainable and resilient future.
