The Prince's International Sustainability Unit

The International Sustainability Unit (ISU) is an initiative of The Prince of Wales's Charitable Foundation.

The ISU works to facilitate consensus on how to resolve some of the key environmental challenges facing the world, specifically those to do with food security, ecoystems resilience and the depletion of natural capital. To achieve this, the ISU brings together partners from across government, private and NGO sectors to pilot practical programmes in marine and sustainable agriculture.

The impact of the work of the ISU is evident in Ghana, Indonesia, Liberia and Brazil where it has pioneered projects to slow deforestation. The ISU has also published key pieces of research on the economic opportunity of sustainably managed fisheries and sustainable food production.
