High School Yards Building 

George David, Kaity David and HRH Princess Royal opened ECCI's new building in October 2013. George David, after whom the Centre is named, said:

"In itself, the ECCI represents a special partnership, between the worlds of education, science, business, and culture; created to address problems that need global and drastic solutions. The Edinburgh Center for Carbon Innovation has already shown that education can be the first step towards re-shaping the world we live in. That science can offer both sophisticated and common-sense solutions to real-life problems. That businesses can and should chose what is right over what is easy. That the future lies in changing the ways in which leaders, policy makers and communities think and act.

I firmly believe that at High School Yards the ECCI will find an ideal home to carry on its seminal work towards a low-carbon future; to carry on innovating.

The new building at High School Yards encapsulates this ethos..I firmly believe that at High School Yards the ECCI will find an ideal home to carry on its seminal work towards a low-carbon future; to carry on innovating."

“ECCI is all about new ideas, collaboration, and knowledge sharing"
