Let's Pollinate Flanders!
In tandem with the Committee of Flemish Extractive Industry (O.V.O.) and the Flemish government, and joined by various partners, Sibelco is committed to enriching the biodiversity of our quarries and more in particular for wild polinators.
Our quarries in Flanders, known for their diverse terrains, have become important points for nature development. Serving as islands of biodiversity in an urbanised landscape, these areas present many opportunities. Through strategic interventions, Sibelco is committed to promoting attractive spots for wild pollinators in our quarries.
The Green Deal acts as a catalyst for sustainability, fostering collaboration among organizations, eliminating bottlenecks, identifying needs, and enhancing visibility. The Flemish government is championing this initiative, recognising its potential to create a bottom-up approach that aligns with the shared goals of all stakeholders.
On January 25th, Sibelco, along with all partners, formally pledged their commitment to the Green Deal. Sibelco's VP Sustainability, Cathy Blervacq, stated,
We ensure that our activities support biodiversity and always leave a positive legacy. Together with Sibelco customers and partners, we take pride in being part of this collective journey.
