In this episode we learn what Kate does every day and the types of work a Sustainability Engineer gets involved in, and we hear about Kate’s background and experience. We hear her thoughts on sustainability, plus what she sees happening with construction and demolition waste in New Zealand – which is a the largest contributor to waste going to landfill.
