The Network for Industrially Contaminated Land in Europe (NICOLE) just issued a booklet on ‘Communication on contaminated land’. The booklet contains case
examples of communication experiences from many companies in different European countries.
One of the main lessons learned from the case studies is that proactiveness pays off. Proactive communication and developing positive relationships with
stakeholders, both when times are good and not so good, is a vital element of responsible business practice. Experience shows that effective communication
can lead to a better quality of solution for all parties concerned and to its wider acceptance.
The case stories are interesting to read and the key messages may be valuable for your own communications with stakeholders on contaminated land issues.
If you are interested to receive a free copy of the booklet please inform the NICOLE secretariat.
