Bee1 Sends 20,000 Welsh Bees to London’s Pall Mall

Bee1, a Welsh-based business which offers corporate social responsibility solutions, has sent 20,000 bees to the Institute of Directors’ headquarters at 116 Pall Mall. The bees, which travelled from Neath to London, have settled into their new home in this iconic building and will play a part in a diverse CSR campaign.

The bees will pollinate approximately 200 million local plants, as well as provide educational opportunities for local schools and beekeeping training for IoD staff members.

Jonathan Geldart, the Director General of the Institute of Directors, said:

“Bees are one of the most important animals on the planet, but their numbers are plummeting rapidly. I am delighted that we are able to play a small part in protecting bees and the vital role they play in the natural ecosystem.

“Quite apart from the environmental, educational and wellbeing benefits the bees will bring, I am also excited by the prospect of IoD members being able to enjoy honey made by our own little captains of industry.”

Mark Douglas, Bee1’s Founder and Chief Beekeeper, is equally as thrilled to have formed this positive partnership.

“I’m delighted that the IoD has chosen Bee1 as their CSR partner. Using a combination of sustainability, support for local schools, the local environment and staff wellbeing we came up with a suitable solution. Plus of course some Bees!

“Seeing organisations such as ioD showing such commitment to sustainability is what it’s all about! The bees have settled in nicely and it’s great to see the iOD team displaying such passion and interest in beekeeping.”
