Our research supports all aspects of sustainability in business, including these themes:

  • Research that takes a whole system perspective of a sustainability challenge and developing business and management insights to address the problem.
  • Research that considers the information needed to support organisations and stakeholders who are seeking to incorporate sustainability considerations into their decision-making, with a focus on financial markets.
  • Research that addresses the particular challenges of social sustainability, especially how to ensure workers are protected in long and complex supply chains.
  • Research that sheds light on business practices, such as strategies in family-owned firms or the role of leadership in responsible business, that are critical for advancing sustainability.

Educating business professionals to be a force for good and for change is also a key part of the Pentland Centre's mission.
