Where interventions in the environment are fixed afterwards

Mining for lime is not possible without effects to nature. In order to keep them as small as possible, the environment plays a part in all we do. For example, the recent expansion of our quarry was accompanied by environment protection agencies. Additionally, we are active in the renaturation of no-longer-used sites and create habitats for wild bees. Through these efforts, we not only protect nature, we are also support our region that should stay a good place to live for humans, animals and plants.


«We work closely with environment protection NGOs to keep the effects on the environment as little as possible.»
