REMEDy a conference on environmental issues.
A convention that seeks solutions to environmental challenges and opportunities to bring together partners, practitioners, and decision makers to an event that moves environmental stewardship and business forward.
First established in 2018, by Lion Environmental, a consulting company, with an idea that the best way to address environmental problems was to understand and examine them from technical, legal, regulatory, economic, and practical perspectives.
The goal to challenge the inefficient old ways of doing things to find effective solutions for soil and groundwater quality investigations, remediation, and brownfield site development. Hearing from different sides means that we step back and look at the big picture to make important policy and business decisions. Sharing knowledge elevates the market offering insights that can be put directly to use, hence makes remediation more accessible, cost effective and sustainable.
Our past conferences audience included developers, landowners, laboratories, environmental consultants, law firms, and Polish governmental agencies including: The General Directorate for Environmental Protection, Regional Directorates for Environmental Protection, the National Water Management Authority – Polish Water, the Polish Geological Institute as well as the Italian National Institute for Environmental Protection and Research
The conference has shared the experiences from other regulatory regimes outside Poland. Previous conferences featured Canada, Italy, Germany, Sweden, Japan, Lithuania, the United Kingdom and the United

REMEDy 2021 focused on brownfield site development that offers an opportunity for strategic sustainable development of urban structures or adversely impacted properties with broader socio-economic developmental goals. Brownfields act as obstacles to growth, a deterrent to the development of larger areas within cities and even to a city itself. The conversion of brownfields lessens health risks to residents, workers, and the surrounding environment. The return from converting brownfields pays back developers by giving them access to strategically located properties, to governmental agencies by removing environmentally impacted sites, to municipalities through the creation of economic engines from fallow lands and to communities by removing adverse health impacts. Brownfield development can be quantified by measuring the number of times an investment is paid back, but what is required achieve our broader socio-economic goals and what technology is utilized to sustainable remediate:
REMEDy 2022 Sustainable Remediation
REMEDy 2022 is the sequel about the many facets of sustainable remediation for brownfield site development, groundwater and surface water remediation, sediment remediation and others. A remedy or combination of remedies whose net benefit on human health and the environment is maximized through the judicious use of limited resources (David E. Ellis, 2009). By its very nature, a sustainable remediation includes assessing the potential impacts to all three integrated dimensions of the triple bottom lines: environment, society, and the economy or people, planet, and profit.Sustainable remediation practices are not only those that minimize global impacts (e.g., greenhouse gases), but also practices that decrease local atmospheric effects, possible impacts on worker and community safety, and consumption of natural energy resources that might be attribute to remediation activities.
A chance to discuss and explore this timely issue from an environmental, legal, regulatory, and financial perspective. REMEDy invites those from industry, government, consulting, solution providers, and the academic fields to participate in the REMEDy 2022 conference.
