Helping the international community 

adopt and maintain environmentally sound and sustainable practices

 AEHS Foundation Partners

The Association for Environmental Health & Sciences Foundation (AEHS) and the Sustainable Remediation Forum (SURF) are both non-profit organizations who share a commitment to improving the practice of environmental science and engineering through information transfer and education with broader audiences. In its 32-year history AEHS has distinguished itself by producing world-renowned conferences and publications, and accomplishing projects and activities around the globe. In its own 10-year history, SURF has brought the principles of sustainability into practice in the remediation field through publications, training, and outreach.

Through recent deliberation and dialogue, both AEHS and SURF have come to recognize important mutual benefits to both organizations through a closer working arrangement. Specifically, by SURF co-locating its spring and fall meetings in conjunction with AEHS Conferences, both organizations benefit from the synergism of two organizations working together to form a vibrant agenda of presentations, information exchange through dialogue and interchange with conference participants, an increase in potential volunteers from SURF for AEHS conference activities, and a level of certainty and predictability in planning for both organizations. Beyond co-locating SURF meetings at AEHS conferences, there are natural opportunities for both organizations to work cooperatively in a number of other areas including publications, outreach, and projects of mutual interest.

The Association for Environmental Health and Sciences (AEHS) Foundation, Inc., and Integral Consulting Inc. are pleased to announce a formal working partnership, which will, among other benefits, enhance the toxicology and human health risk assessment offerings of AEHS Foundation. AEHS Foundation is excited to collaborate with Integral scientists whose work represents the state-of-the-art in risk science. In the near term, Integral will help form a subcommittee of the AEHS Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) that will focus on human health risk assessment issues. In the longer term, working with Integral will allow AEHS to increase the number and depth of human health risk assessment presentations at its conferences, as well as courses, seminars and workshops.

AEHS Foundation is a nonprofit, member-supported professional organization, which develops conferences, seminars, publications, and collaborative partnerships. The Foundation’s purpose is to facilitate communication and foster cooperation among professionals concerned with the challenge of environmental assessment, cleanup, and protection. Founded in 1990 as the Association for Environmental Health of Soils, AEHS has provided an international forum for more than 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 and hydrogeology, toxicology, engineering, exposure and regulatory science.

Integral toxicologists, public health specialists, and environmental scientists have substantial experience in conducting toxicological and exposure evaluations and risk assessments for products and chemical or biological agents in indoor and outdoor environments. Developing and employing a wide variety of tools and methodologies, Integral delivers sound advice and high quality, defensible work products to address its private- and public-sector clients’ needs within regulatory, legal, and product liability arenas. Integral’s expertise in toxicology, industrial hygiene, public and environmental health, air modeling, fate and transport modeling, and statistical analysis, combined with additional resources in other environmental science disciplines, creates the essential foundation for accurate, comprehensive, and reliable evaluations.

International Society of Environmental Forensics (ISEF)

The International Society of Environmental Forensics has grown out of the need for a platform to present scientific investigations that address environmental contamination subjected to law, public debate, or formal argumentation as well as the evaluation of the basic science that serves as underpinnings to those activities. The goal of the ISEF is to regularly provide workshops, and training on subject matter encompassing all aspects of contamination within the environmental media of air, water, soil, and biota. The society also serves to promote the publication, and dissemination of relevant technical material in the journal Environmental Forensics, the official journal of the International Society of Environmental Forensics.
