I almost forgot a couple of other items re: investment in brownfields and liability. First, in the US there are a number of companies that are in the business of purchasing and remediating environmentally distressed properties. They are backed by huge investment firms. Second, there are a number of insurance products available to insure against future liability. I look forward to further discussions. >>> "Kelly, Elizabeth" <firstname.lastname@example.org> 04/02 11:19 AM >>> Hello all, I'm new to the newsgroup and have a request for information. I'm am working on a project in the United Kingdom that involves assessing the need, feasibility, and structure of an investment fund/vehicle that would be used to reclaim brownfield land/derelict land for soft end uses (open space) since not all derelict land is suitable for hard end uses such as businesses and housing. Part of the research involves assessing the best practice in other countries, including the US, on funds like this. We are particularly interested in finding out how liability can be managed - and strategies for maintaining funding, in the light of the fact that soft end uses may not necessarily be profitable. Which brings me to my couple of questions: 1) does anyone in the group know of investment funds (or other pools of money) in the US that are particularly focused on remediation for softend uses? how do they deal with potential liability issues? how are they funded? 2) is there a centralised source of information on investment funds for brownfield remediation? (I've checked out EPA and HUD for federal programs and NorthEast Midwest Institute for state programs -- it appears that there is so much going on, this might be an impossible question) Any thoughts that anyone might have will be greatly appreciated.
