The Sustainable Market Actors for Responsible Trade project (SMART) does research that promotes sustainable development within the planetary boundaries. SMART responds to questions such as: How can we achieve global development goals, without destroying the very basis of our existence?  

Global economic development has been a world changing phenomenon - bringing immense benefits and opportunities. Simultaneously, the impacts of climate change and global loss of natural habitat is becoming far too evident – urging scientific inquiry that can contribute to a global sustainable development within a circular, low-emission economy compatible with planetary boundaries in line with international development goals.

The overarching objective of SMART is to do research that will serve to promote global, sustainable development within a circular, low-emission economy compatible with the planetary boundaries and in line with the international development goals. 

The SMART project is addressing the grand challenges of our time.
