Holcim has designated a conservation area in the form of a coastal green belt (forest covered limestone hills between the quarry and the coast) no conservation management plan for the green belt has been defined yet. The current biological monitoring system based on the initial environmental impact assessment does currently not provide sufficient information to monitor biodiversity (e.g. monitoring for bats and cave invertebrates does not identify species) of improve biodiversity management for the forests in the designated conservation zone. As the quarry is legally converting remaning intact limestone forests.
