The Centre for Environment and Sustainability (CES) was formed in recognition of Western’s dedication to, and support for, environmental studies. Dynamic growth in the areas of environmental and sustainable research across a broad spectrum of disciplines necessitated a need to consolidate of research talent into a single collective and foster environmental education.

The Centre for Environment and Sustainability provides a vital stage for the exchange of interdisciplinary research and perspectives for a collaborative of internationally acclaimed researchers from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Social Science, Arts and Humanities, Information and Media Studies, The Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry, The Richard Ivey School of Business and The Faculty of Law, as well as other environmental groups and affiliates across the Western campus.
