Bees are much more important to our planet than one might think. The dramatic decline in the world’s bee population requires its urgent protection. That is why we at Greiner decided to give bees a home at our headquarters in Upper Austria.
Bees are essential for our global ecosystem – as pollinators they ensure biodiversity and food security. That is why a number of ten beehives moved into the Greiner Campus in April. The beekeeper Florian Peterstorfer looks after the beehives on campus and ensures that the sweet honey can soon be tasted. The bee products are much more than just sweets: royal jelly is just as beneficial to human health as propolis, which serves as a natural antibiotic. We hope to soon be able to provide training for our employees on the importance of bees for our planet and the health effects of their products.
To highlight the importance of bees for our global ecosystem, the United Nations have designated May 20 as World Bee Day.
