Environmental Engineer

It's my job to research, design and plan solutions to the environmental hazards from our renewable energy projects. I assess the potential impact on the air, water and land from construction through operations, then plan how we can minimise harm. Alongside Ecologists, we make sure we are protecting our natural environment.
