Quarrying can indeed have detrimental impacts on wildlife, and this is particularly true when individual companies lack adequate, or indeed any plans to manage their impacts on wildlife. Sadly, not all companies have effective measures to protect and enhance biodiversity, in the way that CEMEX does, a company which works proactively with BirdLife developing Biodiversity Action Plans. Whilst BirdLife cannot work with all mineral extraction companies, we know that by working collaboratively with companies like CEMEX to develop effective plans for nature we can achieve more together, and help improve standards within the cement and aggregates sector. BirdLife only works with selected extractive companies: those who do have an impact but who can potentially lead the sector, addressing impacts responsibly and systematically.
