Opportunities to go above and beyond compliance
Apr 26, 2017 5:20 PM ET

Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC) released a new white paper, Transforming Remediation Sites into Conservation Assets: How Companies Leverage Business Needs for Positive Environmental Outcomes, available for free on its website.

This white paper demonstrates how companies involved in remediation are moving beyond meeting regulatory requirements and increasingly adopting conservation-based approaches to site cleanup and reuse. It highlights case studies of various strategies WHC members have taken in advancing biodiversity on cleanup sites to create wildlife habitat, support local conservation priorities, and build green spaces for the community.

Sponsored by The Boeing Company, this white paper includes a foreword by Steve Shestag, Boeings Director of Environment, in which he states, In our pursuit of global environmental leadership, we champion the value of going above and beyond compliance. Put quite simply, our goal is to leave places better than we found them.
