Short description: EXTRACT: Ecologically sustainable development (ESD) is a touchstone guiding development of natural resources and use of land. It is particularly applicable in the context of contaminated land, playing roles in the prevention, remediation and management of contaminated land. This paper will outline the concept of ecologically sustainable development and its application to contaminated land. The discussion will use legislative examples to illustrate the application of ESD principles to contaminated land.
