Long description: This report considers qualitative and quantitative approaches for assessing the wider environmental value of remediating land contamination. In terms of the environmental element of sustainable development, a remediation project’s overall environmental performance is the sum of the environmental 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 environmental, economic and social impacts and benefits. Wider environmental 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
