[en] This study aimed to establish a common Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) framework to report biodiversity for the Gypsum Industry at the European level. An original approach of participatory process has been developed in order to integrate the different opinions and to reach a consensus framework between different stakeholders’ groups: Eurogypsum stakeholders, European and local authorities, universities and consulting offices, European and local associations for the conservation of nature and stakeholders from the mining sector. The strategy is based on five main steps: (i) To build a stakeholders’ network; (ii) ) To build a framework proposal to be submitted to stakeholders by selecting a maximum set of indicators based on the literature and reaching an agreement on indicators with Eurogypsum (Focus Group); (iii) Reaching a consensus framework with all the stakeholders and evaluating feasibility by a Delphi Policy survey, by the analysis of the Environmental Impact Assessments of the Gypsum Industry and by visiting three quarries; (iv) Final validation with Eurogypsum; (v) Creating indicators’ Factsheets and a Eurogyspum report to the destination of the public. The resulting framework contains eleven indicators which are the most acceptable set of indicators for all the stakeholders. It answers to European legislation and strategies for biodiversity. It is intended to improve sustainability in the quarries and to help managing biodiversity, to allow setting up of appropriate reporting systems. It is a flexible framework adaptable given the local context of each gypsum quarry in order to prove if a No Net Loss has been reached at a quarry’s scale.
