The IARU Sustainability Science Congress is an international Congress which brings together experts from across disciplines to break down academic barriers and blaze a trail to broader collaboration on sustainable solutions relevant to society. The congress also targets businesses and policy makers, with the aim to provide a platform for science-policy interface relevant for global challenges.

The congress is organized by the International Alliance of Research Universities (IARU) through a Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) and a Local Organizing Committee (LOC). It is a follow-up from the inaugural climate congress held in 2009 in conjunction with COP-15 in Copenhagen.
