He has also contributed to several transposition and implementation studies as well as the regulatory development of EU legislation, including Impact Assessments. Peter also has a well-established reputation in environmental assessments, contributing for example to the policy assessment of TEEB the development of Strategic Environmental Assessment. In late 2014 Peter co-funded Ecocentric Consulting. Peter holds Master’s degrees from both London School of Economics and Helsinki University of Technology
