To provide a Net Benefit to the conservation of the species impacted by the quarry fill project, Aggregate Industries US established a program of annual monitoring falcon nesting and breeding activities at the fill site as well as at three other active quarry sites in the area. Monitoring will continue for the duration of the fill project. During the 2017 nesting season, falcons were observed at all four quarries with nesting activities confirmed at two of the four sites. AI will also provide funding for land protection, conservation research, habitat management and/or conservation planning for the benefit of the falcon species.
This is an example of Holcim’s commitment to demonstrate a positive change for biodiversity as laid out in the group’s sustainability strategy, the 2030 Plan.
