This will be a hybrid event with both an online and in-person element (at Lancaster University, Lancaster, UK).

The deadline for booking in-person places is 17:00 Weds 13 Oct 2021.

The event will be streamed live, and a link will be sent to all participants nearer the time.

Organiser The Pentland Centre for Sustainability in Business

Organiser of Pentland Centre annual symposium: a tribute to Jeffrey Unerman

The Pentland Centre for Sustainability in Business is a research centre at Lancaster University delivering stimulating research on 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. 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.
