Our People

Peter Jones
Principal Consultant
I lead a lot of our work on commercial waste and on environmental legislation. I’m fascinated by how the media engages with environmental issues, and regularly challenge inaccurate reporting. I edit the Isonomia blog and play in Eunomia’s band Dirty Murph & the Kerbside Sorters.

Peter is an experienced PRINCE2® project manager with expertise in waste legislation, strategy development and waste services procurement.

He also regularly advises on commercial waste, working with both public and private sector clients on business efficiency, valuation and commercial due diligence. He has proven expertise in policy and strategy development, the flexibility and creativity to take on a wide range of projects, and a keen analytical approach to problems that derives from his training in philosophy.


Recent Experience

Peter’s recent assignments include surveying commercial waste collectors on their approach to achieving compliance with the separate collection requirements of the Waste Regulations 2011, in which he drew upon the knowledge gained as the lead author of the widely acclaimed Waste Regulations Route Map and many subsequent “TEEP reviews” for councils. He has assisted the West of England Waste Partnership in the development and implementation of a refreshed strategy for waste treatment.

He continues to advise on procurement issues, with recent projects including the preparation of guidance for Zero Waste Scotland on how public bodies can use good procurement practice to minimise the risk of waste crime. He has also provided support to both Wrap Cymru and Zero Waste Scotland on the development of innovative approaches to support local authorities in achieving best value in the treatment and sale of waste and recycling.


Career History

Peter joined Eunomia in May 2011 after a career in public sector policy development and project management, primarily in connection with legal aid, but including a secondment to DECC in 2010-11. His experience includes policy development, quality assurance, business process change and procurement. He manages much of Eunomia’s marketing team and edits the www.isonomia.co.uk blog.
