We have a vision for a world where business understands, acts upon, and furthers sustainability outcomes in its activities.

Who we are and what we do

We are a network of research, teaching and professional services colleagues largely based at Lancaster University and at the University's international partners.

Located in Lancaster University Management School, we work closely with their leadership team to advance sustainability within teaching, research and impact across the School.

As we work towards our vision we want to create more impact than could be achieved through our members or stakeholders working alone. We do this by:

  • Bringing together colleagues from across Lancaster University who wish to work together to further develop knowledge and its application with policy and practice communities.
  • Working in partnership with individual businesses, as well as professional and business associations, to support their sustainability ambitions.
