The St Andrews Sustainability Institute (SASI) is a group of people at the University of St Andrews who are working towards a sustainable future for everyone. A key objective of SASI is to provide a focus for existing interdisciplinary research at the University and a spark-point for new collaborations across the whole breadth of sustainability. Members of SASI are drawn from more than a dozen academic schools and administrative units within the University.
