Unique contributions to sustainability made possible by partnerships

What gets measured gets done, and progress in sustainability science is no different. Data has the power to advance the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)(opens in new tab/window) for 2030 and beyond. We are committed to driving change, from our publishing portfolios and analytics capabilities to building research capacity in developing countries and advancing diversity in science.

Action for change

We understand that science and research are key drivers for positive global societal change. From our publishing portfolios and analytics capabilities, to supporting unique partnerships through the Elsevier Foundation(opens in new tab/window) and working with the global research and health communities, we are proud of our contributions to inclusive science and research.

Inclusive health and research

Taking action on climate

The world must reach net zero no later than 2050 – a challenge requiring rapid reduction in all greenhouse gases. Science-led solutions are critical to achieving this. We have a role as the leading scientific publisher to ensure that science is heard and acted upon by the right people.

Inclusion and diversity

Innovation, productivity and decision-making are enhanced when we embrace differences — from gender identity and sexual orientation to race and ethnicity, age, physical ability and neurodiversity. Everyone deserves an equal opportunity to succeed in research, in health, and in our own organization.
