Within the context of corporate responsibility lessons, this video looks at the need to incorporate stakeholder engagement into project design. It highlights the difference between what is obviously way below what is considered the modern standard in sustainability (a non-permitted and high-risk 24-hours excavation undertaken by an Austrian company in Romania as an ad-hoc "solution" to supply material for a motorway project financed by national and EU funds), and a project brought about by vision and partnership that others might argue goes beyond the needs of sustainability. This video tries to give some insight into how two European development projects can have so different results -- one with obviously unnecessary destruction and the other using excavations to regenerate a local economy.

A non-permitted and high-risk 24-hours excavation had started in 2011 in Banpotoc village, Hărău Communa, Hunedoara County as an ad-hoc “solution” for an Austrian company to supply material for Deva-Orăștie motorway, a project financed by EU funds. This video is documenting how a European development project wrought unnecessary destruction.
