Work in waste management is increasingly technical. This work involves both collection, transport and sorting of waste, then either recycling or "smart" treatment of waste to minimise any environmental impact.
Jobs are increasing in the management of both air and water pollution. These jobs rely on applying new and developing technologies.

Other professions such as urban development, automotive design, meteorology, flood mitigation and landscaping are also relevant here.
