About Circular Ecology
Dr. Craig Jones
Craig provided the data to carbon footprint the construction of the London 2012 Olympics and tailored an embodied energy and carbon database for the $22 billion Masdar city in Abu Dhabi, which aspires to be the first zero carbon, zero waste and car free city. He wrote the first book dedicated to embodied carbon in construction and gained his PhD by the rare route of publication, which involved publishing 9 academic articles on the topic of embodied carbon and life cycle assessment.
Craig has a broad and deep experience of footprinting and LCA which includes many hundreds of building materials and building products, entire buildings, power stations, roads, electrical cables, national electricity systems, sludge dewatering systems, breakwater systems, high tech fabrics, photovoltaic systems, solar thermal systems, Dyson’s Airblade hand dryers, breads, pig farming systems, natural and organic pesticides, textiles and more. Craig also lead the technical development of an embodied water (footprint) database for materials, is an experienced peer reviewer, has created many carbon footprint calculators and is PRINCE II qualified, managing projects for both commercial and public sector clients.

Dr. Stephen Allen
Steve helps organisations to measure, understand and reduce their environmental footprint, identify cost saving opportunities, meet regulatory requirements, and develop robust environmental messages. He has experience of footprinting the products and operations of small to global organisations in a range of sectors, including the built environment, rail, clothing, food, energy technology, and consumer appliances. Example projects and clients are listed on his project experience page. With a PhD from the University of Bath, Steve has co-published numerous scientific papers on energy analysis, carbon footprinting and life cycle assessment, one of which was awarded the prestigious George Stephenson Prize from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.
Steve has developed effective communication skills and working relationships with a wide variety of people, from frontline staff to senior management. During his time as energy adviser for the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology, Steve provided concise scientific briefings to Parliament that were used in policy making, and was an invited member of the International Visitor Leadership Programme in the United States. He featured in the BBC2 programme ‘It’s Not Easy Being Green’, has written a monthly sustainability column for the Bath and Bristol Magazines, and his work has been included in Professional Engineering, the magazine of the IMechE. Steve has delivered well-received training courses for both the public and private sector on environmental footprint analysis and reduction.
Outside of work, Steve likes speaking Spanish with his wife and family, and enjoys taking part in triathlon and other outdoor sports.
