Science for sustainability and circular economy

The International Society for Industrial Ecology (ISIE) promotes industrial ecology as a way to address sustainability challenges and achieve a circular economy. The science of industrial ecology applies a systems perspective to explore how material and energy are used by society to find solutions to complex environmental problems. The ISIE facilitates communication among scientists, engineers, policymakers, managers, and advocates who are interested in better integrating environmental concerns with economic activities.

The mission of the ISIE is to promote the use of industrial ecology in research, education, policy, community development, and industrial practices.

The Journal of Industrial Ecology has a new home and leadership

As part of the transition of the Society to an independent association, the ownership of the Journal of Industrial Ecology (JIE) has been transferred from Yale University to the ISIE.
