Quarrying substantially affects the local environment both during operations and following closure. The extraction of material, soil removal and subsoil digging may greatly affect a site’s topography and the local watershed and ecosystem.
Quarry rehabilitation plans aim to restore the environment to a sustainable level, taking into account the unique requirements of the local ecosystem and its stakeholders. Proactive planning can even contribute towards the creation of new micro ecosystems in which fauna and flora and the local inhabitants find additional benefits.

We provide a specialist rehabilitation plan drafting service for operators to use when they cease quarrying operations. Our plans follow the recommendations included in the Guidelines on Quarry Rehabilitation by the Cement Sustainability Initiative (CSI) in collaboration with the World Business Council of Sustainable Development (WBCSD).
