Partnership with HeidelbergCement


To increase the role quarries can play for biodiversity, HeidelbergCement – one of the world’s largest manufacturers of building materials – entered into a partnership with BirdLife International in 2011. This partnership, based on our shared values of promoting biodiversity while using natural resources sustainably, aims to contribute to global biodiversity through better management of quarry operations and their nature restoration. If carefully designed, mineral extraction operations can reduce their impacts on landscapes and biodiversity and create opportunities for rare species and habitats. Together with local BirdLife partners, HeidelbergCement companies implement local biodiversity projects in many countries – the result is the perfect combination of global commitment with local action.
