Challenge the practice is addressing: The basic idea of Lasselsberger GmbH was to combine nature conservation, e-mobility, photovoltaics and recycling in the "Greener Construction" project and to implement it in a sensible way.
Concrete practice to achieve the expected goal: Nature Protection: The company is supported by the LANIUS, an NGO research association for regional nature conservation. To improve the habitat structure, the following measures have been implemented and are continuously evaluated: (i) establishment of four floating breeding rafts on the quarry ponds, (ii) reduction of wood to improve reed zones for breeding sites, (iii) white-tailed eagle winter feeding, (iv) installation of a winter bird feeding ground, (v) hedge planting, (vi) reforestation concept, (vii) creation of different steep walls for kingfishers, bee-eaters and sand martins, (viii) partial fencing of the ponds so that wildlife is not disturbed when nesting. E-mobility & photovoltaics: The company started to convert its vehicle fleet to e-mobility and plans to produce the majority of the required energy itself. E-cars for the administrative sector and off-road service vehichles for the maintenance of the sand and gravel pits. Additionally a photovoltaic system in the garage is planned at the Wörth plant and on the open water areas of the existing quarry ponds. Recycling: Recycling of construction waste, i.e. asphalt, rubble, broken concrete, to produce high quality recycled building materials. Insertion of own recycled building materials for ready-mixed concrete production. New dry building materials under the brand "CEMIX" - "Klima PROTECT-Beton", which supports the reduction of CO2 by the addition of recycled building materials.
Expected impact/goal of the practice: The company has the intention to ensure high-quality raw materials while protecting the environment.
