The primary aim of the Centre is to inspire members to contribute to the ongoing debate on the achievability of the various components of the UN-2030 sustainable development goals (SDGs) at international, national and regional levels.

This goal is consistent with the Lancashire School of Business and Enterprise (LSBE) mission, “to positively transform life through business and enterprise shaped by the latest research”.

This Centre has strategic oversight for the development of research with the Lancashire School of Business and Enterprise (LSBE), driving our research ambitions and directly supporting research activity, overseeing the doctoral programme and helping the development of our future researchers.
