The Quarry Life Award is a scientific and education competition, takes place every three years and runs simultaneously at national and international levels. Its aim is to raise the awareness of the ecological value of extraction sites and sharing new best practices.
Currently, biodiversity projects are carried out in our quarries around the world.
We awarded international prizes up to € 30,000 in 2022. The 6th edition will start in 2024.
Heidelberg Materials and more than 100 guests celebrated the seven winning teams of the fifth edition of the Quarry Life Award in Brussels. Building on the award, Heidelberg Materials develops best practices for quarry management which are then applied on a global scale, amongst others supporting the company’s contribution to the EU restoration agenda.
After reading more than 50 Final Reports, the Jurors met virtually today (23 September) to discuss the results.
