Dustin started with Green Alliance in June 2011, and runs the Resource Stewardship theme. He works with Julie Hill who chairs the Circular Economy Task Force.
Previously, he ran the Climate and Energy Futures theme, providing maternity cover for Rachel Cary. During this time, Dustin focused on Electricity Market Reform and energy efficiency, giving evidence to the Energy and Climate Change Committee in June 2012 on the draft Energy Bill. He also contributed to a public debate on pathways to a low carbon 2050 hosted by DECC in early 2011
Before joining Green Alliance, Dustin worked for the Campaign to Protect Rural England where he led work on the relationship between landscape protection, climate change, and new energy infrastructure. He also led on the future of land use, and was a key contributor to CPRE’s Vision for the Countryside, which provides a long term perspective on how the countryside should be managed in light of increasing demands on the land.
