Project area: Germany

Duration: 2018 – 2020

Background

Changes in agricultural land use continue to be one of the main threats to biodiversity. Quality and sustainability-oriented companies such as Alb Gold have a steering effect and can ensure the protection of the environment and biodiversity beyond legal requirements. Adding the aspect of nature conservation to Alb Gold products is therefore a future-orientated development of the production guidelines to the market requirements and market opportunities.

Implementation

Regional Biodiversity Hotspot Analysis and Catalogue of Measures; individual development and implementation of biodiversity action plans; Monitoring, application of an analysis tool (Biodiversity Performance Tool) on selected farms; Demonstration workshops on pilot plants to present the measures and project results.
