GeoPro Talks - Sustainability Evaluation of Remediation Options
Global warming and sustainable development are vital issues for our world. Similar to other sectors, an important and emerging question facing the environmental remediation industry is how to integrate the principles of sustainable development. These principles are often summarized in relation to the triple bottom line, which encompass environmental, social and economic factors.
This presentation will summarize ways in which sustainability can be incorporated in environmental projects through best management practices and by integrating sustainability indicators into the planning and decision-making processes as laid out in a new Toolkit of Remediation Technologies being developed for Contaminated Sites Approved Professional Society of British Columbia and Shell Global. A roadmap for sustainability evaluations is presented that includes consideration of technical feasibility together with the triple bottom line.
