Upcoming Spotlight

Contaminated Land Remediation
Thursday 21st January 2021

As we continue to uncover the critical role of land in climate stability, sustainability has become a new imperative in the land remediation field with important implications spanning the breadth of the sector.

Dealing with an industrial legacy of over 400,000 hectares of contaminated land, net zero targets and renewed pressure for urban regeneration drive increasing demand for economically sustainable brownfield remediation, as well as continuing innovation.

This spotlight will allow environmental, remediation, planning and development professionals to learn about the latest trends and innovations in land remediation methods.
