Bradford Griffin

Executive Director

Brad Griffin has worked throughout his career on resource management issues from project scale to international public policy. He received a Bachelor’s degree in geological engineering (BASc) from the University of British Columbia in 2004, which included work in the mining, construction, small hydro, and materials sectors. After graduating, he worked as a field engineer with Keystone Environmental investigating and remediating contaminated sites throughout BC. For greater policy focus, Brad completed a Master’s degree in Resource and Environmental Management (MRM) at Simon Fraser University in 2010, with an emphasis on energy economics, risk analysis, and physical resources.  Following this, he moved to Grenoble, France where he worked with a consulting company, Enerdata, using the POLES global energy-economy model to forecast long-term scenarios. His work included model development (upstream oil & gas, carbon pricing, transport), analyses for the European Commission, national governments and large utilities, and reports and presentations aimed at various audiences, both technical and public.
