The quarrying of granite and gneiss is closely linked with interventions in nature, and is strictly regulated by law. They limit the mining of rock, and oblige us to renaturate or recultivate these areas.
RÖHRIGgranit® is committed far beyond these legal requirements. To this end, we have been cooperating with NABU for many years. We are a member of Umweltallianz Hessen and Ökoprofit Südhessen, as well as being awarded as a partner for biological diversity in the state of Hesse.
We pay special attention to nature even during the mining phases. Because quarries are not only sources of raw materials. The quarrying process keeps creating new, ever-changing biotopes. Many animals and plants that have lost their natural habitat find a substitute habitat here.
For us, the protection of such newly populated niches is a special task. In the quarries of RÖHRIGgranit®, protected species such as peregrine falcons, eagle owls, yellow-bellied toads, and little ringed plovers develop. Our employees maintain the biotope areas in addition to their day-to-day business.
