What are the UEPG Sustainable Development Awards?

The European Aggregates Industry supports the principles of sustainable development and is committed to operate with care and concern for the environment, for its neighbours and for society as a whole. The UEPG Sustainable Development Awards illustrate this commitment by promoting the spread of best practice and by encouraging projects that go well beyond what is required by planners or regulators, set new standards of excellence and provide an inspirational example that others can follow.

UEPG launched the first European Restoration Award scheme in 1997; in 2005, UEPG enlarged the scope to all aspects of sustainable development with the UEPG Sustainable Development Awards; in 2010, a special award was dedicated to Biodiversity. Since 2013, UEPG is receiving more than 40 applications at each edition. For this edition, a new category on communication has been added.

For the 2019 edition, the independent Jury is composed of:

  • Brenda O’Brien,
    Manager at Brussels Liaison Office, European Agency for Safety and Health at Work
  • Slavko Šolar,
    Secretary General of EuroGeoSurveys (The Geological Surveys of Europe)
