Sustainability

The pursuit of excellence and leadership must be based on the implementation of the economic efficiency to compete, the respect for the environment and the improvement of social development and welfare levels.

Quarry restoration plans

The exploited areas in all our quarries are restored through restoration plans which have been previously approved by the competent authority. Their aim is to return the land to a state similar to that one before the area was exploited, always seeking the highest level of landscape integration in the natural environment. Although these plans are guaranteed by law, for DFG this commitment is more than just a legal requirement; it is the result of the determined ethical approach of its enterprise policy.

Waste transformation

Waste transformation into by-products. With the aim of optimising the use of waste resulting from block cutting, DFG has crushing plants in its production centres.

Waste transformation

Low energy consumption

As granite is a natural product, the extraction process is simpler and its energy consumption is lower than for other materials.

Resource use efficiency

The water used in block cutting is recycled, and pluvial water is used to hose down the roads and for other services.

Economic development

Our quarries create value for the communities in which they operate, and they stimulate their economic activity by generating direct and indirect employment.

Environmental impact assessment

Before opening the quarries, a study is carried out to minimise their environmental impact, and the possible long-term environmental effects are subsequently monitored.
