The Introduction to Sustainable Remediation webinar introduces sustainable remediation concepts and applications, including green remediation. 

Sustainable remediation integrates the “triple bottom line” of sustainability, the environmental, social and economic aspects, into cleanup projects.  Experienced practitioners from the US Sustainable Remediation Forum (“SURF”) providing the webinar will define sustainable remediation and its application to reduce the environmental footprint of remediation projects while also benefiting the surrounding community and its economy.  The webinar illustrates sustainable remediation with case examples describing its practices during the investigation, remediation, operations, and monitoring of hazardous site cleanups.  The webinar also explains the drivers behind sustainable remediation and what prompts responsible parties to integrate these concepts into their cleanup programs.  This introductory webinar is designed to benefit remediation practitioners including consultants, contractors and regulators who are interesting in this developing area of the remediation industry.
