The Institute of Environmental Sciences (CML) is positioned in the Faculty of Sciences of Leiden University. The core business of CML is to perform research and education in the interdisciplinary field of Environmental Sciences. CML has two Departments: Industrial Ecology (CML-IE) and Conservation Biology (CML-CB). Presently, over 90 fte (including postdocs and PhDs) are employed at CML. CML collaborates with the TU Delft and Erasmus University in the Leiden-Delft-Erasmus Centre for Sustainability (LDE-CfS) and Centre for Metropoles and Mainports (LDE-CMM).

The CML-IE department is core partner in the Leiden / Delft joint degree Master program Industrial Ecology. The interdisciplinary program welcomes some 60-70 new students every year of which 50% come from abroad. Students have a background in either natural sciences, social sciences or engineering. Next to this CML contributes to various other teaching programs, including a Minor in Sustainable Development.
Research in the CML-IE department aims to provide a solid scientific basis for the analysis of sustainability via method development in the field of e.g. Life cycle assessment (LCA), material flow analysis (MFA) and environmentally extended input output analysis (EE IO). CML-IE is one of the globally best known institutes in this field. We apply such tools for specific case studies in fields such as aquaculture, concrete recycling, energy systems, critical materials, etc.
