The International Society for Industrial Ecology (ISIE) promotes industrial ecology as a way to address sustainability challenges and achieve a circular economy. The ISIE facilitates communication among scientists, engineers, policymakers, managers, and advocates who are interested in better integrating environmental concerns with economic activities. Its mission is to promote the use of industrial ecology in research, education, policy, community development, and industrial practices. In order to accomplish this mission, the ISIE seeks to build a community of interest, support cumulative learning, produce high quality research, and promote social change. 

The ISIE has a growing membership of over 700 members, spread over all continents. Within the ISIE, various Sections organise events and provide resources focused on key methods and approaches. 

Cristina Madrid (PhD in Environmental Sciences and Management) is a junior research director at ICTA-UAB. She was Marie Curie fellow at the Center for Industrial Ecology, Yale University during 2015-2018.  With her research she seeks to understand how trade-offs between water, energy and food systems can accelerate or delay the path towards sustainability policy targets. Her research integrates regionalized life cycle and metabolism assessments, open modelling and citizen science and she teaches at graduate level courses on these topics. She currently leads the ICTA-UAB group for the SENTINEL, SEEDS and LIVEN projects and the development of ENBIOS, a metabolism-LCA python-based module for the environmental assessment of energy transition strategies.
