The Pentland Centre for Sustainability in Business

Our mission is to deliver world-class research evidence and engagement that enables executives to embed social and environmental sustainability into their core business strategy.

The Pentland Centre for Sustainability in Business is a research centre delivering stimulating research on sustainability in business.

We draw on expertise from across Lancaster University, especially from within Lancaster University Management School and the Lancaster Environment Centre.

We achieve tangible real-world impact by engaging with businesses, policymakers, academics and others to consider:

  • How a strategic focus on sustainability can drive both financial and non-financial performance.
  • How adoption of purposeful business models can advance a sustainable transformation of business-as-usual.
  • The nature and impacts of sustainability risks, opportunities and changing stakeholder values.

In undertaking this work, we support the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement.
