- Biodiversity in quarries
Research projects in unique habitats
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. You can help us reach that goal by joining the 2nd edition of the Quarry Life Award!
