Reforestation Bembibre Green Mine in Spain: 

Environmental reforestation of an old mining operation with an area of ​​8.78 ha in Bembibre, León (Spain).


The plot is located in the northern part of Bembibre (León), to the east of Laguna de la Grulla, in the area of ​​the Coal Mine. With an area of 8.78 ha, it is located at about 900 meters above sea level. The area is a high fire risk area.

The Plantation

The reforestation of the degraded area after continuous mining operations will contribute to multiple improvements of the different ecosystem services. On the one hand, it will increase the quality of the area's landscape, the vegetation will protect the soil, reducing soil erosion and increasing the soil's water retention capacity.

All this will translate into an increase in the area's biodiversity. On the other hand, the pine forests will help mitigate climate change by absorbing CO2 and fixing it, while contributing to another ecosystem service, the supply of wood, managing it under the criteria of sustainable forest management. In the plantation, two species of pine were used, with a plantation frame of 3x3 m. It is planned to make a clearing after 25 years and reduce the density of feet and in turn reduce the risk of fire.

Sustainable Development Goals

1: No poverty

There are many reasons, but in short, because as human beings, our well- being is linked to each other. Growing inequality is detrimental to economic growth and undermines social cohesion, increas- ing political and social tensions and, in some circumstances, driving instability and conflicts.

The private sector has a major role to play in determining whether the growth it creates is inclusive and contributes to poverty reduction. It can promote economic opportunities for the poor.

5: Gender equality

Regardless of where you live in, gender equality is a fundamental human right. Advancing gender equality is critical to all areas of a healthy society, from reducing poverty to promoting the health, education, protection and the well-being of girls and boys.

We fund education campaigns to curb cultural practices like female genital mutilation and change harmful laws that limit the rights of women and girls and prevent them from achieving their full potential.

8: Decent work and economic growth

Goal 8 is about promoting inclusive and sustainable economic growth, employment and decent work for all. Decent work means opportunities for everyone to get work that is productive and delivers a fair income, security in the workplace and social protection for families, better prospects for personal development and social integration. A continued lack of decent work opportunities, insufficient investments and under-consumption lead to an erosion of the basic social contract underlying democratic societies: that all must share in progress.

Providing youth the best opportunity to transition to a decent job calls for investing in education and training of the highest possible quality, providing youth with skills that match labour market demands, giving them access to social protection and basic services regardless of their contract type, as well as leveling the playing field so that all aspiring youth can attain productive employment regardless of their gender, income level or socio-economic background.

Governments can work to build dynamic, sustainable, innovative and people-centred economies, promoting youth employment and women’s economic empowerment, in particular, and decent work for all.

Implementing adequate health and safety measures and promoting supportive working environments are fundamental to protecting the safety of workers, especially relevant for health workers and those providing essential services.

13: Climate action

very person, in every country in every continent will be impacted in some shape or form by climate change. There is a climate cataclysm looming, and we are underprepared for what this could mean.

Businesses and investors need to ensure emissions are lowered, not just because it is the right thing to do, but because it makes economic and business sense as well.

15: Life on land

Goal 15 is about conserving life on land. It is to protect and restore terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and stop biodiversity loss.
