International Perspectives on Green and Sustainable Remediation. Moderator: Nick Garson (The Boeing Company): President, Sustainable Remediation Forum (SURF US). Panelists: Jonathan Smith (Shell): representing SURF UK; Stella Karnis (Canadian National Railway): representing SURF Canada; Garry Smith (Geoyntec): Chairman SuRF Australia and New Zealand; Colin S. Chen (National Kaohsiung Normal University): SuRF Taiwan; Paul Nathanail (University of Nottingham-UK): representing the ISO Sustainable Remediation Standard working team.

Worldwide interest in sustainable remediation has led to the formation of many national groups and projects. This panel discussion will advance the science and application of sustainable remediation by sharing global perspectives and lessons learned. It will leverage the presence and participation of global remediation industry leaders and increase interest in and visibility of sustainability in the context of remediation projects. An International Standards Organization (ISO) document on sustainable remediation is currently being drafted by a global team. The proposed ISO document will provide guidance on sustainable remediation. In particular, it will provide standard terminology and information about the key components and aspects of sustainable remediation and help with the implementation of the practice. The proposed document would be an informative rather than normative document. It would seek to establish a worldwide common terminology and uniform components of sustainable remediation.
