    Biography

    David A. Bainbridge was born in 1948 in Schnectady, New York. He grew up in the west, living as a child in Colorado, Washington, Oregon and California. He received a B.A. in Earth Sciences from the University of California, San Diego (1970) and an M.S. in Ecology from the University of California, Davis (1973). His interest in economics and the challenges of sustainable resource management and environmental accounting began in the interdisciplinary Eco-Grad Group at the University of California, Davis in the 1970s. His career began with environmental planning work for the Environmental Development Agency in San Diego in 1970 to protect the coastal lagoons of San Diego County.
    His work has focused on sustainable management of resources and people and has included: developments in environmental impact analysis, land capability evaluation, planning for sustainable communities, natural heating and cooling research, alternative building materials research and education (including straw bale building systems), research and education work in agroforestry and sustainable agriculture, desert and grassland restoration, and environmental accounting and sustainable management for businesses.
    Bainbridge helped develop the sustainable management program for the Marshall Goldsmith School of Management at Alliant International University and taught sustainable management, environmental management reporting, ethics, and other courses, until his retirement in 2010.
