‘Nexus’ issues and business

The world is facing interrelated threats from complex social-ecological and economic systems spanning the food, energy, water "nexus". 

The role of companies within these issues has been significantly under-researched.  This research theme considers how companies are both the drivers of negative environmental "nexus" impacts, and the drivers of potential solutions.

The Pentland Centre is also acting as a Lancaster-based Nexus research hub, coordinating a discussion group across Lancaster University and engaging with leading initiatives within the UK-based Nexus Network.
