After water, aggregates are the second most demanded materials on the planet!
As water is becoming a strategic good, water management turns out to be an important topic for industries, including ours.
How to combine sustainable & responsible water management and aggregates extraction?
Aggregates extraction needs water in several ways. Aggregates Europe – UEPG issued a Water Management Guidance document. Those documents show that the impact of the European Aggregates Industry on water quantity and quality is very limited. Besides, our industry positively contributes to societal needs such as flood prevention, creation of wetlands enhancing biodiversity, and improving the water quality.
The guidance documents and our case studies show plenty of best practices from our industry, demonstrating that responsible water management & aggregates extraction can go hand in hand.
