Incorporating Sustainability into Brownfield Remediation

Sustainable remediation involves considering the full picture when making decisions about brownfield remediation projects. It begins at the planning stage, continues through site assessment, remediation and redevelopment, and brings many environmental, economic and social benefits.

What is sustainable remediation?

"A remedy or combination of remedies whose net benefit on human health and the environment is maximized through the judicious use of limited resources." — U.S. Sustainable Remediation Forum

"The practise of demonstrating, in terms of environmental, economic and social indicators, that an acceptable balance exists between the effects of undertaking the remediation activities and the benefits the same activities will deliver." — U.K. Sustainable Remediation Forum
