Our journey towards sustainability

We’re always looking at how we do more with less, in the right way. Making things work better. Whether in engineering, education, farming or good works.

Products and technology

Cyclones, not wasteful bags. High-speed air to dry hands instead of energy-hungry heaters. Invention requires leaps of faith and the desire to try new approaches. By continuously improving every aspect of our technologies, using resources more effectively, we're making increasingly efficient machines.

Reinvented motors

Standard brushed motors are heavy and clunky, consuming more electrical energy. So Dyson set out to engineer one that worked better. The result was the Dyson digital motor, which has allowed us to pioneer new technologies in multiple categories.


Buildings and manufacturing

We restore and improve historic buildings, while finding clever ways to generate our own energy to power them. Continuing to do more, with less.

Our sites use renewable energy

Ground source heat pumps that keep our IT server centre cool. Solar panels that can power our research and development building. Anaerobic digesters to power Dyson farms. By the end of 2022, 100% of Dyson-owned manufacturing, and 65% of the electricity consumed by Dyson spaces globally, was renewable or covered by renewable energy guarantee of origin certificates.


Education and medical

We empower the next generation of engineers to solve the problems of our age with education programmes and awards that encourage, recognise and reward.

The Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology

The Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology educates through engineering, with undergraduates working on everything from pollution-sensing backpacks to helping develop sustainable technologies.

Re-defining air sensing technology

Dyson engineers created portable air monitoring technology to study air pollution around the world. From school children in London and Africa to athletes in Adelaide and Tokyo, the backpacks monitored exposure to pollen, dust, VOCs, nitrogen dioxide and other gases – along with the potential impact on wellbeing.

A new perspective to Alzheimer’s research

The James Dyson Foundation funds a £1.5m dementia research Fellowship, in partnership with Race Against Dementia. Dr Claire Durrant is supported by Dyson engineers, who help analyse brain samples on a microscopic level. Using in-house equipment and expertise at Dyson’s labs in Malmesbury.


Dyson Farming

Our engineers work closely with Dyson Farming. Using new technologies and ingenuity to grow produce responsibly and at scale, while also nurturing the natural environment and biodiversity.

Our circular farming system

We feed crops into our anaerobic digesters, which generate renewable energy. Heat and C02 from the process is piped into our glasshouse to encourage fruit growth. In the future, the biogas will be captured to convert into biofuel for vehicles.

Using technology to improve harvests

If the UK lived solely off its own produce, it would run out of food by August each year. We use harvested rainwater and excess heat from our anaerobic digesters in our 15-acre greenhouse, to grow strawberries out of season. And help reduce the food miles associated with imports.
