Technologies offer the means of radically improving resource productivity and reducing the environmental harm of economic activity, but the development and use of sustainable technologies will depend on the attitudes, incentives and capabilities of people and organisations.

The Sustainable Technologies Programme (STP) is a major research initiative by the UK Economic and Social Research Council. It funds innovative and policy-relevant research on the social and economic processes that shape, foster or inhibit more sustainable technologies.

The Programme is also an integral part of the UK Sustainable Technologies Initiative.
