Plant Site Brought to Blossom

Würth Elektronik makes its outdoor facilities bee-friendly

Würth Elektronik has been offering bees a home in Waldenburg for a year now. In the spring, the “WEBee – We’re making a beeline for Würth Elektronik!” initiative set up four bee colonies on an open space on the company's site. Now the company's environmental management is taking care of feeding: Supported by six apprentices and student trainees—the so-called "Young Talents”—who planted an insect-friendly flower seed mixture in front of the plant site, as well as thirty perennials, nine bushes and two trees. Another detail in the nature-friendly redesign: A rock pile was built up as a biotope for lizards. Further renaturisation and flower planting measures are planned for the period following corona, with more participants and the possibility of working more closely hand in hand.

“This visible transformation at the Waldenburg site is intended to create awareness of nature and the environment among our employees. Now we are looking forward to when the plants start to blossom," says Anika Wegmann, Environmental Manager at Würth Elektronik eiSos.
