On 26 January 2012, the Cement Sustainability Initiative (CSIi) launched its Guidelines on Quarry Rehabilitation. This document provides practical guidance for managing the impacts of quarrying activities and ensuring that environments are properly revitalized. The project was carried out by a group of member companies and is based on methods that they have successfully employed. It reflects the principles of quarry rehabilitation, and outlines the conditions and milestones for developing rehabilitation plans. These include defining context and assessing baseline conditions; setting technically and financially sustainable objectives; planning finances; developing and implementing plans; and monitoring, adjustments and post-closure land-use management.
