Justin Goodwin Director


I enjoy developing successful collaborative teams. My work is focussed on supporting decision makers with clear messages which inspire action.

Justin Goodwin, Director

Justin’s expertise was built up through establishing the UK’s greenhouse gas and air pollution monitoring and reporting systems. Justin was responsible for overseeing the development of the national system and built and led a team of 20 emission inventory experts for 15 years.

Justin is still actively involved in designing bespoke systems for data gathering, analysis, QA/QC and reporting on energy, greenhouse gases and air pollutants. For the European Union and through his work with the European Environment Agency’s Topic Centre, Justin has played leading roles in projects for the EU Member States’ compliance with the Kyoto Protocol reporting and continuous improvement of GHG inventories, projections and policies and measures.  Through these activities Justin has developed highly effective cross Party knowledge sharing and capacity building systems.

Justin also supported countries including Barbados, the West Balkan countries (Croatia, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Macedonia, Kosovo, Serbia) Turkey, South Africa, Italy, Ireland, Iceland, Jamaica on their National Systems. Justin serves on the UNFCCC’s roster of experts and has led reviews for UNFCCC Protocol inventories for over 10 countries.  

Justin is married with three daughters, a dog and 2 chickens and is a keen windsurfer and kitesurfer.  Justin enjoys time outdoors and on the water with his family and recycling materials into furniture in his spare time.
