The sustainability of the environment, depends on pollinators (bees) and the important service they provide. Our pollinators are in decline. Of the 98 different types of bees on the island of Ireland, nearly one third are threatened with extinction.
The All–Ireland Pollinator Plan is a strategy to address this problem. It is a shared plan of action supported by more than 68 governmental and non-governmental organisations. By helping our pollinators, we are improving biodiversity across Ireland.
To develop our commitment to this Plan, ICM has installed Bee Houses & a ‘long flowering meadow’ on both our Camolin & Navan sites. The next step for our business is to work with our farmer suppliers to build our knowledge, so as to improve on-farm biodiversity and increase our sustainability.
