Shannon Lloyd is an assistant professor of management in the John Molson School of Business, an associate member of industrial engineering in the Gina Cody School of Engineering, and a research associate of the Loyola Sustainability Research Centre. She is an industrial systems scholar whose research focuses on the environmental impacts of current and emerging industrial systems. Before joining Concordia University, she was the Senior Director of Sustainability at R&D consultancy CTC, where she worked with public and private sector clients to advance sustainability. Professor Lloyd’s research aims to answer two questions: 

  • How can we better use environmental and social impact assessment to inform the development of sustainable technologies and industrial systems?
  • Which sustainability practices improve organizational performance and advance absolute sustainability?


  • Ph.D. in Engineering and Public Policy, Carnegie Mellon University
  • M.S. in Civil and Environmental Engineering, Carnegie Mellon University
  • B.S. in General Engineering (Systems Engineering and Design), University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Areas of Expertise

  • Life Cycle Assessment
  • Supply Chain Sustainability
  • Corporate Sustainability
  • Measuring Sustainability Performance
