Our company operates a quarry at Wazo Hill, responsibly extracting raw materials while adhering to mining and environmental regulations such as the Mining Acts 2010 and Mining Regulations 2010, along with subsequent amendments.

In support of biodiversity, we implement new standards and management plans, collaborate with conservation organizations, and engage in policy advocacy. As a cement company, we extract limestone for clinker production, vital for cement manufacturing. Recognizing our environmental impact, we rehabilitate mined areas by establishing tree nurseries, restoring the land to its original state. Additionally, we contribute to urban greening initiatives in Tanzania through tree donations and promote land conservation through awareness programs. Our quarry hosts diverse tree species, including fruit, shade, and timber trees
