The role of project management is crucial in ensuring that sustainability-related goals and targets are met when undertaking new developments through projects in areas such as construction, infrastructure, oil and gas exploration, to name but a few. In this Special Issue, we will focus on a new sub-area of project management, where besides the traditional success criteria for projects, such as cost, time, quality, overall satisfaction, etc., there is a need to meet criteria relating to economic, social and environmental aspects. The Special Issue will present a body of works that has new knowledge regarding project management approaches, structures, processes and procedures to undertake sustainable development. Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, minimising waste, ecological impacts and carbon footprints, lean and green approaches to projects, psycho-social aspects in projects, i.e., engagement of stakeholders, fair treatment of teams, managing project supply chains, defining and measuring sustainability-related project performance, setting project management strategies and bridging the gap between policy and practice at the project level.
