Our Team for Estonia

Meet Kadri, our National Lead for Estonia!


What is your background?
I have studied environmental technology and materials of sustainable energetics. My work and hobbies have been intertwined with environmental issues for already 10 years. My professional experience is pretty diverse. I started in the field of organic food and later as a chemist I tested toxic elements in food and water. I continued as an engineer developing new generation thin-film flexible solar cells. In the last years my focus has been in waste reduction. I was a CEO in the biggest package recycling company in Estonia and I launched a circular economy business in reusable cup system for public events.

Why did you become a country lead?
As being inclusively involved in the environmental practices I believe that as a society we can do a lot better in terms of sustainability. I have always had the strive to contribute to environmental development any way I can. ClimateLauncpad with its professional experts enables the synergy for the highest outcome and real change.

Why do you think this competition is so important?
