CEEP is striving to bring better environmental, economic and social benefits to Australia.

The Centre conducts research with industry, institutions and government agencies integrating information and perspectives from physical sciences, biology, social sciences and economics.

It aims to assist program investors in achieving the most highly-valued environmental outcomes through better targeted funding, employing more appropriate policy mechanisms, and operating in a cost-effective way.

Its research is focused on projects that bring an evidence-based approach to environmental decision-making.
