Helping the international community 

adopt and maintain environmentally sound and sustainable practices


The Association for Environmental Health and Sciences Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit, member-supported, professional organization. Our purpose is to facilitate communication and foster cooperation among professionals concerned with the challenge of soil, sediment, and water assessment, cleanup, and protection. 

With over three decades of relationship building and service, we know that resolutions for environmental contamination can be found only through the integration of scientific and technological discovery, social and political judgment, and hands-on practice. AEHS Foundation facilitates conferences, seminars, publications, collaborative partnerships, and our members-only online community.

Founded in 1990 as the Association for Environmental Health of Soils, AEHS has provided an international forum for over 600 members, industry experts, researchers, and governmental organizations to exchange information and advance awareness of environmental issues. The AEHS network spans professional disciplines from across the U.S. and abroad including biology, chemistry, geology, engineering, and regulatory science.

In 2009, AEHS officially launched the AEHS Foundation in order to better define and showcase the organization’s scope and breadth of engagement. Recognizing that the core values of AEHS are fundamentally for the public good and that results rely heavily upon the efforts and energy of our members, it was a natural transition to create a non-profit entity.  Moving forward, the AEHS Foundation will continue to build upon its global network and offer members education, training, and scientific experiences. AEHS membership and journals, Amherst Scientific Publishers, and the International Society of Environmental Forensics are now facilitated by the Foundation.

AEHS Foundation welcomes you to our website and invites you to explore the many initiatives and opportunities provided to encourage the international community to adopt and maintain environmentally sound and sustainable practices.
