Economic effects
Risk management / remediation is directed towards an economic 
benefit (e.g. redevelopment). However, the route taken
to achieve this benefit can have wider environmental effects.
In terms of the economic element of sustainable development, 
a remediation projectís overall economic performance
is the sum of the economic elements of the core and non-core
aims of a remediation project. The core aims are those fixed
by the primary drivers and constraints of the project. Non-core
performance is related to wider economic, economic and
social impacts and benefits. Wider economic effects might
include a variety of components within categories such
as: aggravation factors, air and atmosphere; water function,
ground function; legacy; resource and energy utilisation;
and conservation.
