About this event
There is no doubt that climate change poses a huge range of challenges to different sectors, organisations, and communities across the UK. In addition, there is a growing set of regulations to assess climate-related risks and consider the added impact of climate change on many kinds of projects. One new area which is gaining attention is the need to assess the impacts of climate change on land contamination conceptual site models, which has been recognised as part of the July 2023 update to LCRM. Arcadis has built on the white paper prepared by the Society of Brownfield Risk Assessment (SoBRA) Guidance on Assessing Risk to Controlled Waters from UK Land Contamination Under Conditions of Future Climate Change, Version 1.0 (August 2022) to develop a screening framework and model to enable an impact assessment to be undertaken as part of Preliminary Risk Assessments, and beyond.
This Sustainability Delivery Group Expert Talk will provide an overview of the regulatory landscape around climate risk, using the example of incorporating climate change within land contamination models as an illustration of the multi-disciplinary approach required to fully understand the impacts of climate change.
