The focus of this special issue is on the politics of innovation for environmental sustainability. Environmental sustainability is a key issue facing society. It has become a central concern for many involved in science and technology studies (STS) who have sought to understand the form and direction of sociotechnical innovations, their implications for environmental problems and their remediation.

The stimulus for this special issue was a symposium held at the University of Edinburgh in March 2012 to celebrate the contribution of Stewart Russell, who died in 2011, to STS.
