Biodiversity projects in unique habitats
Registration re-opens next fall 2015
Test your innovative ideas to promote biodiversity in mining sites by joining the next edition of the Quarry Life Award. In the Edition 2014 over 260.000 EUR were awarded to 64 projects!
A mining site provides a great variety of landscapes and habitats that present low disturbances from human activities. As a leading cement and aggregates producer, HeidelbergCement is committed to managing biodiversity during and after extraction. In more than 1000 quarries and pits worldwide we strive to promote the exceptional local flora and fauna. Through The Quarry Life Award and the participating projects, we aim to raise the knowledge of the biological value of mining sites and contribute to further enhancing it.
