Responsibility for the environment is a key corporate value of the Schmersal Group. Therefore, the company uses, inter alia, photovoltaic systems and a combined heat and power plant in the production plant Wuppertal. Now Schmersal has also settled a bee colony on the roof of its headquarters. The bees are looked after by an employee who is a hobby beekeeper and has made available the bee colony from his herd. In order to provide the bees with an additional food source, flower meadows will soon be laid out on the company premises. Through the pollination of crop and wild plants, bees make an invaluable contribution to our ecosystem and food production. However, many bee species are threatened with extinction.
