Leir Research Institute for Business, Technology, and Society (LRI) focuses on one of the most critical global challenges facing business and society today: the impacts of climate change and other disruptive societal and operational events on corporate sustainability and business continuity. LRI has an integrated, dual mission of innovative business research and targeted outreach necessary to realize the Institute’s overarching goal of helping business and industry to become more eco-efficient, resilient and sustainable.

The LRI is housed on the second floor of the Central Avenue Building, at New Jersey Institute of Technology.
