The CSI Guidelines on Quarry Rehabilitation contain a clear set of recommendations for the development and implementation of a quarry rehabilitation plan. Their main objectives are:
- Supporting the process of quarry rehabilitation across member companies to improve the standard of rehabilitation projects for existing and new sites.
- Ensuring that CSI members have a common understanding of the CSI KPIs on quarry rehabilitation, and that reporting against these KPIs is consistent across members.
The guidelines are designed to complement, and ultimately enhance, existing successful rehabilitation practices and methodologies. It is for each company to mandate and apply the guidelines within their operations to the extent and in the manner that they consider appropriate.
The guidelines are aimed primarily at CSI member companies, but it is also hoped that other industry participants will consider adopting them – thereby contributing to a wider improvement in standards.
