Welcome to our podcast series where leaders across Beca discuss how our post-COVID-19 recovery and rebuild opportunities could support decarbonising New Zealand and contribute to a future of sustainable prosperity.
We recently published a report titled 'Decarbonising a prosperous New Zealand' which looked at eight key transitions that would best enable the country to rapidly shift to a low carbon economy. Over the course of 11 weeks our podcast series, hosted by Kate Meyer - Business Director of Sustainability, built on this report, addressing some of the social, cultural, environmental and economic challenges and opportunities, as well as contribute to the ongoing discussions about how we can get the best outcomes.
Listen to the series below
Ep.8 - Recovery of waste
The recovery of waste provides massive opportunities for New Zealand including environmental and economic improvements, with a lot of innovation added to the mix.
Ep.9 - Three waters
In this episode, listen to our team as they share insights on transisitions in three water systems in New Zealand.
Ep.10 - Social infrastructure
One of the big challenges ahead, is how to get the organisational and societal changes we need, at the rates we need them. We talk about working through the COVID-19 transitions (in and out of lockdown) and what we might be able to learn from these more broadly to apply to this decarbonisation challenge.
Ep.10 - Digital
In our final episode of our 'Getting to Carbon Positive' podcast series, Dr Kate Meyer is joined by Thomas Hyde, Chief Digital Officer, and Sue Bradley, General Manager – Industrial Digital, to talk about the huge role digital and technology can have in helping us to decarbonise Aotearoa New Zealand and the opportunities this presents on a global scale.
