Gregg Butler is director of Integrated Decision Management (IDM) and ex-Deputy Chief Executive of BNFL. In that capacity, he continued to be paid significant amounts of money by BNFL - some £53,000 in 2005 and £78,109 in 2004.[1]

Butler is also an ex-Director of Nirex and ex-Member of the UK's Radioactive Waste Management Advisory Committee (RWMAC).

Currently also Professor of Science in Sustainable Development at the University of Manchester Environment Centre.[2] In this capacity, Butler has been quoted as an "energy expert" by the Science Media Centre responding to Blair's calls for an energy debate, yet no mention is made of his financial links to BNFL or pro-nuclear bias.[3]

At IDM, Butler's clients have included the Committee on Radioactive Waste Management (CoRWM), the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA), BNFL, the European Union, the UK regulators, the Ministry of Defence and the Department of Trade and Industry.
