ABOUT CONFERENCE


REMEDy is a conference on environmental issues that impact Poland. First established in 2018, by Lion Environmental, a consulting company, with the 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 of REMEDy is 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.

This year’s REMEDy is bigger, better, and free of charge to attendees.

REMEDy is a tool that seeks solutions to environmental challenges and the opportunity to bring together partners, practitioners, and decision makers to an event that moves environmental stewardship and business forward.

 

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 .

CONFERENCE PROGRAMME


The REMEDy Online conference has three thematic sessions: International, Regulatory and Technical.

REMEDy 2021 will focus on Brownfield development. Poland’s continued economic growth and the shifts brought on by impacts from COVID-19, have created a demand for industrial property development closer to city centres across Poland.

Poland is at a juncture; it must weigh the need to support economic expansion with the long-term impacts. What is best for Poland? Sustainable growth is the only smart answer, new investment has to focus on brownfields rather than greenfield.

REMEDy 2021 focuses 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 demand an integrated approach from environmental professionals, legal experts, property developers, designers/architects, regulators, and policy makers to creatively transform urban and harmful properties into productive assets that serve comunnieties.

 

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.

 

Participants to REMEDy 2021 will hear about the many facets of brownfield development. 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 this year’s REMEDy conference.

A very interesting event. Particularly interesting due to the lectures of many practitioners in the field of contaminated land treatment. I am already looking forward to the next edition.

In terms of content, the conference was of a very high standard. I was particularly interested in the session on legal regulations. The issues discussed certainly broadened my understanding of certain problems I face in my professional practice.

A very valuable conference. It enables you to learn both new methods of investigating soil contamination and remediation solutions not yet used in Poland.
