Strengthening awareness of biodiversity conservation is a major concern of the Kalkalpen National Park. Within the ECO KARSTS project, four Pro Biodiversity companies were awarded for the highest contribution to the sustainable development of the area, identification with the Kalkalpen National Park and contribution to regional cooperation in the region.
Winners of the Pro Biodiversity Business Award 2019 are:

Together with other pilot regions in karst areas in the Danube region, the Kalkalpen National Park wants to position itself as a sustainable region. Therefore, companies who are devoted to sustainability and regional development were carefully selected and awarded, all with the aim of supporting the Pro Biodiversity business concept and inspiring other entrepreneurs to follow this concept.
