IVAM UvA BV contributes to a sustainable world by making sustainability concrete for its customers. IVAM's research and consultancy work aims to develop a language to communicate on sustainability, to make the concept of sustainability measurable, and to stimulate sustainable development by providing specific measures. In this way IVAM builds a connection between science and society. We pay attention to Planet, People and Profit in our assignments for governments, companies and NGOs. We focus on both technical and human aspects of sustainability issues, to arrive at balanced solutions for the present and for the future. IVAM supports you in the following areas: sustainable urban planning, life cycle assessment (LCA) / chain management, chemical risks, nanotechnology, sustainable consumption and production, climate and energy.
