19. White Stork

Presented by the “Ecology and Healthcare” Working Committee


The project has been developed in light of the ongoing participation of EBC member-companies in large-scale pipelines construction projects. Its goal is to apply special environmental protection measures, in addition to any measures provided by local government to protect nature and bird populations, in particular white storks.

  • Increase living space for life and reproduction of white storks by undergoing conservation actions;
  • Strengthen international cooperation between European local communities engaged in white storks protection;
  • Expand partnerships with local non-governmental organizations and attract new parties.
