Benny is Professor of Sustainability and Supply Chain Management and the co-leader of the Sustainable Production and Consumption cluster at the Centre for Business in Society (CBiS). He has a vested interest in sustainability and environmental conservation. Over the last five years he has focused his overarching research area on Sustainable Operations and Supply Chain Management, in particular, the exploration of Circular Economy principles in manufacturing processes. He is an engineer by education and has a strong background in contemporary simulation and modelling techniques, including discrete-event simulation, agent-based simulation and system dynamics. He has applied these techniques, amongst others, such as Life-Cycle Assessment/Analysis (LCA), in addressing sustainability issues in modern factories, by proposing an environmentally-conscious manufacturing systems design method, as an innovative way to achieve the triple bottom line objectives, ‘doing good for people, planet and profit’.

His research track record has been demonstrated by winning a number of research grants from the Engineering & Physical Research Council (EPSRC), Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), Academy of Medical Sciences (ACMEDSCI), InnovateUK, European Union, overseas funding agencies and directly from the UK industry sectors.
