Environmentally Responsible Redevelopment and Reuse

(ER3)

The

Environmentally Responsible Redevelopment and Reuse (ER3)

Initiative uses enforcement and other Agency-wide incentives

to promote sustainable cleanup and redevelopment of contaminated

sites.

The cleanup and redevelopment of contaminated sites produces

significant environmental benefits and, in most cases,

is preferable to a property remaining underutilized or idle. Current

development practices, however, can also have significant environmental

impacts, such as wildlife habitat destruction, stormwater runoff,

use of scarce natural resources, and increased energy consumption.

By incorporating sustainable practices and principles into their

projects, developers of contaminated sites can minimize the impact

of the project on the environment without sacrificing profitability.

Sustainable development is a multi-faceted, long-term approach

which balances economically sound development with environmental

protection and social responsibility. For more information

on sustainability in general, please refer to EPA’s

Sustainability website.
