Germany: Bee careful initiative wins award

Schwartau has been recognized for its green credentials after it received a prestigious award that honors companies that seek to drive their business sustainably and holistically through the bee careful initiative.

The award is considered one of the most prestigious environmental award in Germany and is given by the Schleswig-Holstein Institute.

The jury scored our bee careful initiative as “evidence for entrepreneurial thinking and action that is not short term orientated, but works way beyond the factory gate”, Stephanie explained.

The award was received by Sebastian Portius, VP Innovation & Quality, on behalf of the bee careful team, who joined forces with the Schwartau beekeepers and presented participants at the award ceremony with information about bees and their particular importance for the environment.

The prize, a bronze plaque, can be seem at the entrance of the I&Q building in Schwartau.
