has been a member of AERU staff since 1995. During that time he has
been involved in numerous projects related to agriculture, the
environment and sustainability. Recent activities include assessing the
impact of rural development programmes of climate change mitigation and
adaptation, reviewing the potential environmental impact of livestock
feed additives, developing carbon footprinting tools,
framework for practical and effective environmental labelling , and
evaluating the environmental benefits of different farming systems. His
work has included the development of software applications for farmers
and growers, and the development of best practice / knowledge transfer
web sites in the UK and across Europe. He has also been involved in the
development of methods for environmental impact assessment, auditing
and risk assessments. He also undertakes sustainability assessments
which involves integrating environmental, economic and social
assessments to provide an holistic perspective.
an BSc in Agroforestry from the University of Wales, Bangor, an MSc in
Ecological Design from the Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, a PhD
from the University of Hertfordshire, is an IEMA (Institute of
Environmental Management and Assessment) Practitioner, and is a Member
of the Institution of Analysts and Programmers.
joining AERU in 1995 John was a Researcher at the World Resource
Foundation now known as Residua. There he worked on projects related to
sustainable waste management. These included the use of Life Cycle
Assessment (LCA) in waste management and the public perception issues.
