voestalpine treats all local ecosystems at its production facilities responsibly and contributes actively to the maintenance of biodiversity.
For example, some 20,000 m² of flower pastures were created in Linz, the Group’s largest production site. The resulting wildflower pasture provides an additional source of food for many types of insects—especially bees. “Insect hotels” also provide breeding spaces for rare species. A project for establishing and managing several bee colonies at the site is currently being implemented; voestalpine employees with many years of beekeeping experience take care of them.
