C&R have a long history of conducting high-quality research in a variety of environmental fields, ranging from climate, extreme weather events, water quality, soil properties, geology and ecological conditions to data quality and numerical modelling. In the recent years, staff members and affiliates have published a variety of independently peer-reviewed journal articles.

As a government-registered research service provider (RSP), we can undertake potentially tax-deductible research in a wide range of environmental fields. For further information on our past research and current capabilities, contact Jasmine Jaffrés.
