Improving Environmental Health and Sustainability through Scholarship

Mount Royal University’s Institute for Environmental Sustainability (IES) was founded in January 2013 to improve environmental health and sustainability through scholarship that integrates diverse academic disciplines, student learning and community engagement. Learn More. 

  • We act as facilitator and catalyst for interdisciplinary research on sustainability.
  • We engage with students and researchers across the full spectrum of academic disciplines.
  • We create and foster partnerships with industry, government, non-government agencies and institutions in the region.

Core funding of the IES was provided by generous gifts from Encana Corporation and Repsol Oil & Gas Canada Inc. We are also grateful for financial support from Progress Energy Canada Ltd., Newalta Corporation, Imperial Oil, Shell Canada Ltd and Suncor Energy.
