SCHOLAR UPDATE - ADRIAN CAMILLERI

Adrian Camilleri, a 2013 AAA Alcoa scholarship recipient, recently published research on consumer choices and environmental impact, in Nature Climate Change journal. Adrian and his colleagues’ findings indicate that although consumers underestimate the emissions required to produce certain food products, consumers will choose less-polluting products when a ‘carbon label’ informs them of the carbon footprint of their purchases. Adrian began the project while studying at Duke University on his scholarship and is now a Senior Lecturer at the University of Technology Sydney.

Read a summary of Adrian’s findings here or the original research here.
