Established in 2008, the Office of Environmental Sustainability works to promote, coordinate and implement the most effective sustainability practices possible by developing positive solutions for today’s ecological challenges. Based in National University of Singapore, OES is one of Singapore’s leading institutes on promoting environmental sustainability.

The Office’s mission is to “effect a total shift to environmental sustainability in all aspects of life by integrating sustainability into our operations, planning, construction, education, research, instruction, and public service”. For the past 2 years, we work hard to encourage and facilitate the collaborative efforts of students, faculties and staff to generate knowledge, acquire skills, develop values, and initiate practices that will contribute to a sustainable, high quality of life on campus, in Singapore and across the globe.

The Workplace Research Centre provides high quality research, training and conferences on all aspects of work and working life. Based in the Faculty of Economics and Business, University of Sydney, WRC is one of Australia's leading authorities on the changing nature of work.

The Centre's charter is to "inform, advise and educate". Over its 20 year history we have provided employers, governments, unions and NGOs with the practical and accurate insights they need to make decisions. We have actively raised the standard of public debate on issues such as working time, the realities of labour standards and the future of skills policy in Australia. We engage in commercially commissioned and grant-funded activities but our aim is always the same: to be independent, rigorous and useful for our clients and society.

Our strength is in our multi-disciplined, talented team of researchers, trainers and event organisers who have a passion for understanding working life. We draw on their expertise in the fields of law, management, economics, psychology, social policy, industrial relations and education and our extensive network of local and international practitioners and academics.

The Workplace Research Centre was formerly known as the Australian Centre for Industrial Relations Research and Training (ACIRRT).
