Registration (March 7 deadline for $75 discount!)


In this day and age, it is imperative that we act responsibly and avoid negatively impacting the environments and communities in which we do site cleanup. Remediating sites in a green and sustainable manner – improving environmental, economic, and social outcomes – is an innovative approach that can be incorporated into any cleanup project. Green and sustainable remediation approaches can be used to raise awareness of externalities (e.g., resource consumption, air pollution) associated with cleanup activities and minimize them by selecting transparent strategies, implementing best management practices, and establishing verifiable goals.

This workshop will provide a comprehensive review of frameworks and tools that are available for implementing green and sustainable remediation. This course will teach participants how to identify and mitigate the adverse externalities associated with a site cleanup, how to implement green and sustainable remediation approaches in a verifiable and meaningful way using publicly-available resources, guidance, framework, tools and metrics, and how these practices, if implemented properly, can lead to environmental, social, and/or economic benefits for all stakeholders. Workshop participants will walk away with an understanding of green and sustainable remediation concepts, know where to find publicly-available resources, and be prepared to implement this approach on their remediation projects.
