INTRODUCING: ECO-INNOVATOR SHOWCASE
Has your municipality incorporated sustainable or environmentally supportive strategies into your remediation and redevelopment projects? Have you reduced energy use, added renewable energy resources or created green space on underutilized land? Have green infrastructure or resiliency projects enhanced your redevelopment results?
New York municipalities and environmental consultants are leading efforts to reduce, recycle and reuse materials and waste, implement measures that minimize air pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions, reduce energy usage and restore ecosystems before, during and after remediation and redevelopment. We are collecting stories of successful, fully-implemented projects that will enable others to see first-hand the broad range of projects -- big and small -- that have been implemented to protect human health and safety and reduce impacts to the environment.
HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR CASE STUDY
The short, fillable template attached will collect concise information about the project, the ease or difficulty of implementation, key stakeholders, property characteristics, financial resources as well as economic, environmental and social benefits. Together, we can catalog and spotlight projects for replication.
Please use the Guide for Submissions HERE for complete instructions. HERE is the link to the submission form. Please act quickly, as submissions are due October 10th.
We will pick 4-5 submissions to be presented at CCLR’s upcoming “ Innovations in Remediation and Land Reuse” workshop in Rochester, NY on October 25th! This first-ever “Brownfield Eco-Innovators Showcase” will highlight the sustainable brownfields work being done across the state. Additional submissions will be selected for inclusion in an electronic booklet for wide distribution to environmental consultants, municipalities and community organizations.
Please contact us if you have any questions and return the form to email@example.com. Remember, the submission deadline is coming up soon -- October 4th. For inclusion in the booklet, we will also need the Release form. Click HERE to fill in this form after you have completed the Submission form.
