The Buzzi Unicem USA Festus Plant continues to demonstrate its commitment to environmental stewardship by achieving recertification from the Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC) for its Forestry Management Program. The Forestry Management Program is conducted on 2263 acres of plant property and has been certified by the WHC since 2014. This Program undertakes activities to protect and enhance the property’s natural forestry resources, which include enhancing wildlife habitat for a wide range of species, improving plant species composition by managing regeneration, and protecting the natural forestry resources.

“The Festus Plant Parcel is recognized as meeting the strict requirements of WHC Conservation Certification,” said Margaret O’Gorman, President, WHC. “Companies achieving WHC Conservation Certification, like Buzzi Unicem USA, Inc., are environmental leaders, voluntarily managing their lands to support sustainable ecosystems and the communities that surround them.”

Wildlife Habitat Council promotes and certifies habitat conservation and management on corporate lands through partnerships and education. WHC Conservation Certification programs take corporate sustainability goals and objectives and translate them into tangible and measurable on-the-ground actions. WHC-assisted wildlife habitat and conservation education programs are found in 47 states and 28 countries.
