Thursday, 22 April 2021,

Over half the world's GDP is at "moderate, or severe risk due to nature loss" (World Economic Forum). Join Justine Oakes and Professor Nic Bury from the Suffolk Sustainability Institute for a breakfast with a difference as they kick start Earth Day 2021. Justine and Nic will explore how business, climate and planet can be transformed by valuing nature through strategic business action.

Professor Nic Bury's research interests are primarily covered by the UN Sustainability Development Goals (SDG) 14 and 15 and includes aquatic toxicology, stress physiology and environmental monitoring. He supports the 3Rs (refinement, reduction and replacement) approach in animal research and part of his research includes the development of alternate test procedures for fish in toxicological studies.
