Circular Ecology's Craig Jones was interviewed for Sustainable Lens, by Professor Samuel Mann, which is now available to listen to online.
Prof. Mann is a geographer working in computing and who has taught and researched at Otago Polytechnic in New Zealand since 1997, including five years as Head of Department. Sam has published over 150 conference and journal papers in the fields of augmented experiences; sustainability; and computer education.
Craig was interviewed on embodied energy, carbon footprinting and life cycle assessment. Extracts from Craig's interview include...
"Embodied carbon is released in a very short time frame, in fact it's often worth 15-20 years worth of operational emissions. If you don’t take the opportunity to reduce that carbon you can’t go back, that opportunity has been lost forever."
"Too many people confuse carbon footprint with sustainability, and too many people confuse environmental benefits with sustainability."
"Recycling is not a benefit, it should be expected rather than congratulated."
