World Soil Day

LKC 18 0019 ALT

Today is World Soil Day. As specialists in contaminated land, preventing soil pollution is a key responsibility of ours. The UN’s Be the Solution to Soil Pollution campaign aims to raise awareness and call people to #StopSoilPollution. As the UN points out, most pollutants originate from human activities, such as unsustainable farming practises, industrial activities and mining and untreated urban waste, which will undoubtedly harm natural soils. It’s our job as contaminated land specialists, to ensure that sites are correctly inspected for signs of contamination and treated accordingly, in order to keep our clients and the earth happy.
