Biodiversity

AMAG currently owns around 300 hectares of land. The industrially built-up area amounts to around 100 hectares. A total of 178 hectares form part of the company’s own forestry operation, which in turn forms part of the Lachforst forest complex and is managed under the supervision of a forest warden.

This entails special requirements – as does the proximity to the nature reserves "Unterer Inn" and "Buchenwald" only a few kilometres away, the fauna-flora-habitat area (FFH area) "Auwälder am unteren Inn" and the "Salzachmündung" bird sanctuary in Bavaria, which are subject to stringent nature conservation guidelines. 

By maintaining green spaces on the company premises, a contribution is made to the preservation of biodiversity. AMAG’s forestry operations are not regarded as commercial forests, where the focus is on economic returns. Rather, the aim is to achieve sustainable management that continuously promotes the forest’s ecological value. Open spaces are designed according to their nature conservationand open space design potential.

The preservation of green spaces thereby forms one of the basic requirements of biodiversity-promoting and climate-adapted green space management. Work is underway at present on a green space maintenance concept which, in addition to economic aspects, includes an optimised contribution to the promotion of biological diversity.

Since the 2017 reporting year, we have published a summarized non-financial statement in our management report, thereby fulfilling our reporting obligation in accordance with the Sustainability and Diversity Improvement Act (NaDiVeG). It summarizes the essential information for AMAG on the five required aspects of environmental issues, employee issues, social issues, respect for human rights, anti-corruption and bribery.
