The Think Tank Nicolas Baudin studies and research framework is located within the nine planetary boundaries defined by the Stockholm Resilience Centre of the Stockholm University:

Beyond these boundaries, the changes are irreversible and would lead to a destructive or even re-creative evolution, including of the human species. These boundaries are:

  • Stratospheric ozone depletion
  • Loss of biosphere integrity (biodiversity loss and extinctions)
  • Chemical pollution and the release of novel entities
  • Climate change
  • Ocean acidification
  • Freshwater consumption and the global hydrological cycle
  • Land system change
  • Nitrogen and phosphorus flows to biosphere and oceans
  • Atmospheric aerosol loading
