The aggregates industry is based on an ultimately finite resource. The issue from a sustainable point of view is whether or not the human-made wealth created for existing and future generations, justifies the consumption of these finite resources and the disruption involved. The greater the effort made to minimise the adverse effect on the environment, while preparing for, and both during and after extraction, the more sustainable extractive development projects may be.
Kilsaran International is firmly of the view that extraction of aggregates whilst benefiting existing generations should not adversely impact on any future generations and their ability to enjoy the countryside. Through careful management, opportunities to create more diverse habitats can positively benefit these future generations.
Kilsaran is a modern dynamic company conscious that good corporate social responsibility is essential and that an obligation to sound environmental practices a must.
The Company employs a team of full time professional experts in environmental and planning matters. The commitment to good environmental practice starts at the early design stage of any new extractive project. Environmental considerations are factored in to the design, layout, phasing and post closure of all our pits and quarries.
There is a considerable amount of legislation relating to quarrying and the environment, which is backed up by Government and the Environmental Protection Agency guidance documents.
