How Businesses can support the Pollinator Plan

We all depend on the important services provided by pollinating insects. Unfortunately our pollinators are in decline, and the problem is serious. Now we are asking businesses across the island to support the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan.

To sign up as a Business Supporter, follow these simple steps:

 

1.  Download our guidelines    Businesses: actions to help pollinators

businesses-cover-2

 

2.  Send us your signed copy of the ‘Framework for Businesses (page 2 of the business guidelines) by email or post.

3.  Use the flow chart on pages 4-6 to decide what pollinator-friendly actions are right for your company.

 

4.  Sign Up to ‘Actions for Pollinators, our online mapping system to register your site and gain recognition for becoming a Business Supporter and your future pollinator-friendly actions, so we can see the build-up of pollinator resources in the landscape.

We will then add you to our Business supporters list on our website and send you a special Business supporter logo and Certificate of Participation for display.

 

Benefits of becoming a Business Supporter of the Pollinator Plan:
  • A demonstration of your sustainability credentials to consumers and customers
  • Helping ensure the reliability of supply chains dependent on animal pollinated crops
  • Flexible options for fulfilling Environmental Management Systems (e.g. ISO 14001:2015)
  • A framework to support Corporate Social Responsibility objectives
  • Coordination with Bord Bía’s Origin Green programme. Pollinator-friendly actions count towards the ‘Biodiversity Element’ of Key Target Area, ‘Manufacturing Processes’

Suitable for: All employees of any business on the island of Ireland

Is your outdoor space managed by a contractor? We’ve created a pollinator-friendly planting code which you can provide to professional contractors or landscapers. It contains extensive planting lists for bedding (annuals, perennials), shrubs and trees, as well as a copy of our Pollinator-friendly Pesticide Code.
