Background & History

Institution dedicated to the sustainable management of natural resources, energy, and the environment


The unsustainable use and consumption of natural resources, energy and the environment in Indonesia has serious global impacts, especially in the form of climate change. Excessive practices in using fossil fuels and unsustainable forest management contribute to Green House Gas (GHG) emissions, which in turn trigger global warming. Consequently, climate change distorts the weather and raises water levels, increasing the risk of natural disasters such as floods, droughts, and rising sea levels.

To tackle this challenge, it's crucial to adopt a sustainable approach to managing natural resources, energy, and the environment. This includes using renewable energy sources and effectively conserving natural resources. Through this research institute, the aim is to actively work with different stakeholders to safeguard Indonesia's natural resources, energy, and environment for the long term. Understanding and implementing sustainability principles are vital in ensuring the well-being of today's society and creating a healthy, sustainable environment for future generations.



The inception of IREEM, short for the Institute for Natural Resources, Energy, and Environmental Management, can be traced back to the initiative of alumni hailing from the Natural Resources and Environmental Management (PSL) study program at the Bogor Agricultural Institute (IPB) in 2016. As it progressed, the entity, initially recognized as CNEE (Center of Natural Resources, Energy, and Environmental Studies), underwent a transformation in nomenclature, assuming the identity of IREEM.
