According to the group's website, AEHS "was created to facilitate communication and foster cooperation among professionals concerned with the challenge of soil protection and cleanup....encourag[ing] dialogue among disciplines, industries, sectors of society and the economy, and countries.

In January 1999, AEHS formed a panel to review potential human health and ecological risks from polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) detected in Wisconsin's Fox River at the request of the Fox River Group--a consortium of six companies inluding Appleton Papers Inc., Georgia-Pacific Corporation, NCR Corporation, P. H. Glatfelter Company, Riverside Paper Corporation and WTM I Company--responsible for contaminating the Fox River with Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs).
