Susan was previously policy manager at Zero Waste Scotland, where she led a team providing policy support to the Scottish Government. She worked on policies and regulations, including restrictions on single-use plastics, reforms to extended producer responsibility and the early development of a Circular Economy Bill for Scotland.
