Professor of Sustainable Engineering

Jonathan Cullen is the Professor of Sustainable Engineering at the University of Cambridge and the President of Fitzwilliam College.

He leads the Resource Efficiency Collective (www.refficiency.org) and has a reputation for top-down studies of resource systems, bringing skills in developing new metrics to reflect both energy and emissions consequences of materials production. Jonathan currently leads C-THRU: carbon clarity in the global petrochemical supply chain, and is a co-investigator on: S2uPPlant: Smart Sustainable Plastic Packaging from Plants, TransFIRe: Foundation Industries Research and Innovation Hub, UK FIRES: Locating Resource Efficiency at the heart of Future Industrial Strategy, CCG: Climate Compatible Growth.

He is a Lead Author for the IPCC AR6 Industry Chapter, an Expert Adviser to the IEA Technology Roadmaps, and co-authored the book Sustainable Materials: with both eyes open, which pioneered the concept of material efficiency for energy-intensive industries.
