Cle-Anne Gabriel is a lecturer at the University of Queensland (UQ), Australia, and the UQ Business School's Director for the United Nations Principles for Responsible Management Education. Her research focuses on the areas of sustainable development and postgrowth futures.

During our conversation, Cle-Anne Gabriel questions the compatibility between environmental sustainability and economic growth. Is a de-prioritisation of economic growth as a policy objective a way forward to reduce emissions globally?
