Biodiversity & Sustainability with Bee for planet
As leading companies and non-profits invest more time and resources in ESG, they are learning that there’s a strong link between biodiversity and sustainability. The relationship between the two is simple: biodiversity creates a virtuous circle, where the more species that exist in an ecosystem, the healthier the environment. Pollinator diversity is critical to this biodiverse virtuous circle: a wide variety of pollinators means that more species of plants can be pollinated; greater plant diversity supports all forms of life, including animals, fungi and bacteria.
"Pollinators propagate 3/4 of the plants that produce 90% of the world's food. Bees support as staggering 170.000 species of plants that sustain 200.000 animal species. These tiny creatures play an outsized role in our efforts to achieve the 2030 agenda"
Maria Fernanda Espinosa

Long established in Greece, honeybees work in tandem with native pollinators to pollinate not only the fruit and vegetable crops that feed us, but a host of native plant species that are the backbone of local ecosystems. Increasing the number of pollinators improves biodiversity, and biodiversity in turn supports healthier food systems that offer nutritional diversity and security. To establish biodiverse pollinator programs, organizations turn to Ecosystem Service partners like Bee for planet Company, who offer easy to install/easy to maintain, turnkey solutions that have significant, visible impact and engage & educate stakeholders.
