Presentation Overview:

Green remediation is the practice of considering all environmental effects of remedy implementation and incorporating options to maximize net environmental benefits of cleanup actions at contaminated sites. One of the core elements of green remediation is land & ecosystems, which promotes ideas of land management and ecosystem protection. There is a growing recognition of the significance of ecosystem services, as well as the dramatic impacts human activities can have on these essential services. Ecosystem services are the benefits that human populations derive from ecosystems. Examples include erosion control, climate regulation, recreational opportunities and raw materials. There is a unique opportunity to mitigate impacts on ecosystem services, which may occur from the remediation of contaminated sites. Learn more about ecosystem services, opportunities to mitigate impacts on ecosystem services at a site level, and much more during this seminar brought to you by Sarah Slack, a NNEMS fellow at the EPA.
