Birmingham Centre for Environmental and Energy Economics and Management (BCEEEM)

BCEEEM brings together individuals from a variety of disciplines to examine the complex relationship between economic activity and the environment.

Research in BCEEEM

  • Greening business

    Our research covers business ethics and corporate social responsibility, exploring firm-stakeholder relationships, the strategic management of these, and their impacts on company performance and reputation.

  • The energy efficiency of firms

    Our researchers have conducted a number of cutting-edge studies –looking at companies around the world, from Ghana to Japan – to discover more about why this might be. The results provide a deeper insight into how businesses can achieve increased energy efficiency.

  • Shaping energy and environmental policy

    For the purposes of energy and environmental decision-making, an important challenge is to understand the links between the economy and the environment. Research and expertise from BCEEEM contributes to energy and environmental policy debates in a number of way.

  • Cold Commission

    The ‘cold economy’ is crucial to modern society; without it, the supply of food, medicine and data would, quite simply, collapse. In 2015, the Birmingham Energy Institute launched a Policy Commission, entitled Doing Cold Smarter, to look at cold at a system level, and how to combine the growing demand with the large amounts of waste.
