Regulatory Underfunding and the Drive for Net Zero
Funding to the regulatory system that supports contaminated land assessment and remediation has been reducing over recent years. This has led to decreased involvement of both dedicated local contaminated land officers and the Environment Agency in many brownfield and contaminated land development projects.
This Brownfield & Regeneration Network panel discussion, in partnership with Soilfix, explored the extent to which an underfunded, under-resourced regulatory system is presenting a barrier to brownfield development through significant delays, increased costs and additional carbon outputs on remediation projects and endeavour to find a possible way forward.
Use of a ‘Carbon Calculator’ Tool to Support Sustainable Remediation Design – A Contractor’s Approach
Soilfix has been calculating its baseline Carbon Footprint and developing a Carbon Reduction Plan as part of its journey towards achieving ‘Net Zero’. A bespoke ‘Carbon Calculator’ tool has also been developed to help Soilfix determine its potential vs actual Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions from particular remediation projects.
By presenting some case study examples, this Brownfield & Regeneration Network webinar outlined how Soilfix are utilising this tool to help inform clients of the remediation option(s) with the lowest potential GHG emissions and the cost vs benefit of adopting alternative approaches, materials & ‘green fuels’.
