Sustainable remediation integrates the “triple bottom line” of sustainability, the environmental, social and economic aspects, into environmental remediation projects.  This presentation will define sustainable remediation and its application to reduce the environmental footprint of projects while also benefiting the surrounding community and its economy.  The presentation will illustrate where sustainable remediation fits within the investigation, remediation, operations, and monitoring of hazardous waste site cleanups, explain the drivers behind sustainable remediation, and discuss what prompts responsible parties to integrate these concepts into their cleanup programs. Many times we see the regulatory community enforcing clean up to the most stringent criteria which often may cause more environmental degradation than good. Tools and thought processes for working with regulatory agencies will be discussed so that the most sustainable remediation option and criteria for projects can be identified. This introductory presentation is designed to benefit remediation practitioners including consultants, contractors and regulators who are interesting in this developing area of the remediation industry.

Lindsay Burton works with clients in Manufacturing, Pharmaceutical, Chemical, Consumer Goods, Oil & Gas, Financial Services, and Food & Beverage industries to reduce their environmental and social impacts through corporate initiatives, engagement, and strategy development. She is fluent in corporate social responsibility reporting and disclosures, design and implementation of sustainability programs, peer bench marking, stakeholder mapping, program story development, metrics calculations, sustainable remediation, and facilitating client workshops. I also facilitate and perform data collection, evaluation, and narrative for standard disclosure report types such as CDP, GRI, and SASB, in addition to UN Sustainable Development Goals mapping and the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi).
