Østfold Research has become NORSUS – Norwegian Institute for Sustainability Research.
The new name is an expression of an ambition: we want to be even more effective in our mission of contributing to a more sustainable world. We do this by providing a high-quality knowledge base on environmental effects of products, services, and value chains, using Life Cycle Assessment approaches (LCA) and integrated economic, social and environmental approaches. We remain based in the county formerly known as Østfold (now Viken), but our reach has always been national and international. ‘NORSUS’ more clearly positions us a one of Europe’s leading research institutes on LCA, a key element in applied sustainability work at a value chain level and a central factor for achieving a circular economy.
