Environmental award for Sibelco
Monday 15/10/2007 - Sibelco had the honour to receive the most important environmental award InBev-Baillet . This award values 10.000 euro and is annually given out by the Belgian foundation "Stichting Behoud Natuur en Leefmilieu België"

Sibelco receives this award for deviating a small river "Witte Nete" around the Dessel - Donk sandquarry for over two kilometres.

The company has set up a new river-bed using the original material in order to recuperate the excisting flora. By working this way the company went further than the legal obligations and demonstrates that economy and environment perfectly combine.
