Run by the Zlatna Panega quarry, the plan involves the collection of native seeds, their cultivation in a nursery and the biological reclamation of the degraded land. Other elements of the plan include controlling invasive alien and ruderal species, monitoring the area's flora and fauna, and establishing a database of indigenous flora. By monitoring the health of the Zlatna Panega quarry's flora and maintaining a database of native species, the Biodiversity Plan helps preserve the site's biodiversity for the future.

Because of its success in conserving the quarry's vibrant biodiversity and ecosystems during and after extraction, the plan was included in the Biodiversity Management Plan (BMP) guidance drawn up by the Cement Sustainability Initiative (CSI). The guidance aims to be a practical resource for companies that are developing plans for biodiversity management at their own sites.
