Ing. Paul Peeters (1957) is Associate Professor Sustainable Transport and Tourism at NHTV Breda University of Applied Sciences since December 2002. He is responsible for the Centre for Sustainable Tourism and Transport of NHTV and specialises in the environmental impacts of tourism and tourism transport in general and climate change mitigation in particular.
Paul has been educated as an aircraft engineer at the University for Professional Education Haarlem, the Netherlands. He worked four years as an aircraft preliminary design engineer on the development of the Fokker 50 and the Fokker 100 aircraft at the late Fokker Aircraft Factory in Amsterdam. Then he did two years research at the Dutch Energy Research Agency (ECN) on wind turbines. After this a long period followed in which he did research on transport and environment, at the Friends of the Earth (Amsterdam), Werkgroep 2000, a Dutch Consultancy Group and between 1995 and 2008 from his own Consultancy (Peeters Advies). He has been working on diverse projects like airship reintroduction, slow transport modes, cost and benefits of speed reduction, technological development of aircraft fuel efficiency, and transport accessibility for disabled people; common in almost all projects are the environment and the future.
He has been a guest editor for the Journal Tourism and Hospitality: Planning & Development, the European Journal of Transport and Infrastructure Research and the Journal for sustainable Tourism and regularly reviews papers for many scientific journals, books and project proposals. He has published over 130 journal articles, conference papers, book chapters and reports on tourism transportation, climate change, ecological footprints, eco-efficiency and the role of air transportation technology (see below).
He is a member of several environmental working groups of the International Civil Aviation organisation (ICAO-CAEP) working on mitigating greenhouse gas emissions of aviation.
