Biodiversity & Sustainability with Best Bees
As leading property managers and facility executives 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.
