Environment
Respect for the environment forms an essential part of Sibelco’s long-term vision. The first shovel will only appear on a site after extensive consultation with government authorities and local nature groups concerning the reconstruction of the quarry.

Extraction and nature go hand in hand.

Sibelco works with universities and the Flemish government to follow and monitor the impact of its projects on reconstruction. Examples are the deviation of the river Witte Nete and the monitoring of the evolution of floating islands on one of our quarries.

Also local volunteers of Natuurpunt play a role in the monitoring f.e. by spotting the common and black tern on the islands.

Thanks to the proximity of beautiful walking and bike paths each nature lover and tourist can follow our projects.
