PIE contributes to international research and practice in industrial ecology for sustainable development. PIE aims to establish channels of communication between academics, practitioners, business stakeholders and the government with an interdisciplinary and international approach to the challenges of corporate social responsibility and inter-organisational environmental management. The objective of PIE is to bridge material and energy flow analysis to business studies, management and organisational studies and to corporate environmental management. In this way, our objective is to contribute to the ecological, but also to the social and economic dimensions, of sustainable development. While the approach of PIE in combining engineering and natural science orientated methods with social science or business economics methods is a novel and fresh contribution to the theory of industrial ecology, the journal also sees this bridge as the critical step that must be taken to turn industrial ecology theory into industrial ecology practice.
