Title: Sustainable Outdoor Right-of-Way Management
The ongoing loss of domestic animal and plant species and their precious habitats necessitates examining all related sectors of land use on issues of qualification and utilization for environmental protection. The ecological maintenance of outdoor right-of-ways offers a development potential. Through the research project “Sustainable Right-of-Way Management”, the Verbund-Austria Power Grid AG is contributing toward protecting domestic species and habitat diversity. Rare animal and plant species will sustained or specifically promoted. Moreover, in cooperation with the nature conservation authority and the landowners, valuable biotopes surrounding selected right-of-way sectors will be successively re-established.
