CRAIG BURTON

HEAD OF KNOWLEDGE INNOVATION

Craig supports GBPN’s various projects in capacity building and the collection and use of evidence. Craig supports policy reform with GBPN’s country teams in SE Asia and India. His background is in building energy research with a particular focus on behavior change. Craig previously supported and extended the Low Carbon Living CRC Knowledge Hub BuiltBetter.org. Craig provided information systems design for The Analysis and Policy Observatory, APO.org.au.

Previously Craig created bilingual multimedia training materials for Aluminium Pechiney (now Alcoa), La Trobe University Drama Faculty and The University of Melbourne Engineering Faculty. Craig holds a BSc in Cognition (LaTrobe University) and BSc (hons) (Melbourne University) in Computer Science. More recently he completed an MPhil (Melbourne University) in Urban Design, PoolParty Technical Training, and a microcredential in International Development at the Open University.

The building-energy gap means that new and retrofitted efficient buildings do not exhibit as much of the energy savings expected of them once their occupants move in. Part of decarbonising the built environment will involve behaviour change and education for occupants, owners, designers and policymakers. The technologies for a sustainable built environment are already available. They need to be deployed en masse and fully exploited by building users for best emissions reduction outcomes.
