Biodiversity Project Competition

At Akçansa, we set biodiversity management as one of six prioritized topics within the scope of our sustainability strategy, and we have taken it among the sustainability targets for the year 2020.


Within this scope, we held the Biodiversity Project Competition, organized by company partner HeidelbergCement, for the first in Turkey in 2014. With the “Quarry Life Award”, we collect projects contributing to the reclamation of lands and natural wild life after the mining activities back to the nature through creative, different and innovative projects to be generated by the university students and researchers, as well as increasing and developing the biodiversity in these areas. We are aiming to allow the university students to generate projects increasing the biological values of the mine sites and increase their awareness on this matter.
