Senior Lecturer in Carbon Accounting, The University of Edinburgh

Matthew has worked since 2006 in greenhouse gas (GHG) accounting and climate change policy appraisal, in consultancy and academia. He has participated in the development of numerous international standards for GHG accounting, including the revision of ISO 14064 parts 1 and 2, ISO 14067, and as chapter lead author for the GHG Protocol’s Policy and Actions Standard. He has a PhD in Carbon Accounting from the University of Edinburgh, an MSc in Environmental Sustainability, an MSc by research in Philosophy of Language, and an MA in Mental Philosophy.

His research interests are in greenhouse gas (carbon) accounting, focusing on the variety of methods and standards that are available, and the appropriate use-context of those methods - with a particular interest in exploring the distinction between attributional and consequential methods, and applying that distinction to understand the conceptual nature of different carbon accounting methods.
