Peter is a leader in economics for sustainability and currently principal investigator of the 'Understanding and assessing business models for sustainability' project and leading work on the Linkage Local Sustainability Fund Project. With degrees in environmental chemistry and economics, his core research interest is to understand the transition required in bringing about economies that embody sustainable development at local and global levels.
