be-NATURE makes SDGs flourish

In 2015, the United Nations established the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). They form the basis for the sustainable development agenda to 2030. NV be-MINE is completely convinced of this sustainable approach. You can find the proof at the Beringen mine site: be-MINE is an ideal testing ground to put the sustainable goals into practice. And it does so in five ways.

1. Local plant growth

In the former mine, miners used spruce To shore up the corridors. But those spruce forests are planted and so non-local. Now we replace them with local varieties. Thus, the native nature once again have full opportunity to grow and flourish.

2. Less hardening

For industrial activities, you needed solid ground. But for the interpretation of be-MINE that paved floor is unnecessary. By softening, the rainwater the chance to soak into the ground. That Helps against desiccation and flooding hazards.

3. Reuse of water

On a huge building lies … a imposing roof. And that large surface area provides a substantial “water yield. Instead of sending all that precipitation to the sewer system, we have reservoirs built. The captured rainwater we reuse us in several places.

4. Healthier parking policy

The days when the car was king are fortunately behind us. Everyone knows that a piece of walking pretty okay is. Therefore, we provide adequate parking spaces and advocate to governments for a maximum parking standard, with parking facilities that are slightly further from the building. That makes the environment at and around the entrance safer and more pleasant.

5. New local employment

To achieve all the objectives achieve, we need motivated colleagues needed. For example, the SDGs provide new jobs. In this way, be-MINE encourages the local employment and stands the sustainable vision in the spotlight. So we build tomorrow together.
