• What is the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan (AIPP)?
    • What is the background to the AIPP?

The All-Ireland Pollinator Plan (AIPP) emanates from: The EU 2030 Biodiversity Strategy which cites the ‘plight of the pollinator’ specifically. This has in turn been integrated into Ireland’s 3rd National Biodiversity Action Plan 2017-2021 (Objective 4) and indicated in Northern Ireland’s – Biodiversity Plan to 2020 (Page 20, No.30). The Irish Government declared a Biodiversity Emergency in 2019 alongside a Climate Emergency.

Implementation of the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan 2021-2025 is coordinated by the National Biodiversity Data Centre.

The National Biodiversity Data Centre is a Company Limited by Guarantee. Register Number: 730718.

The AIPP actively addresses this time-critical biodiversity challenge and is a shared plan of action for the island now in its seventh year, which builds on the targets to halt and reverse pollinator decline by 2030.

    • Is the AIPP aiming to protect the island’s natural capital and mitigate climate change?

The AIPP remains, and will always be, a biodiversity plan of action for the island without political affiliation or agenda other than to; preserve and protect the natural capital for generations to come; shape guidance based on evidence; and, mitigate, where possible, the effect of climate change.

    • Who’s who at the Plan?

Review who’s who: Businesses, Partners (report on 186 actions), Supporters, Steering Group and the AIPP Team.

    • How is the AIPP set up in terms of governance and accountability?

A 16-member steering group provides oversight of the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan 2021-2025. 

All of the simple pollinator-biodiversity actions delivered by business are tracked nationally on the National Biodiversity Data Centre’s ‘Actions for Pollinators’ secure data mapping portal. This accumulated data, supports the evidence-based actions provided under the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan 2021-2025.

To date circa 340 (December 2022) businesses are implementing actions within the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan across the island with the support of over 100 government (Central and Local) and NGO partner organisations, as well as thousands of communities and farmers.

The AIPP is aligned with Bia’s Origin Green food sustainability programme as pollinator actions supporting members’ biodiversity targets (optional).

The Agri-business officer position is jointly funded by Bord Bia’s Origin Green food sustainability programme and Business for Biodiversity Ireland.

  • Why should my business sign up to the AIPP?
    • Why protect wild bees and other pollinators?

On this island one third of the 101 wild bee species is threatened with extinction (Source: Irish Bee Red List 2006, National Parks and Wildlife Service). They are starving and have nowhere to live as a consequence of how we manage the landscape. N.B. 71 of the 100 crops providing 90% of the world’s food supply are animal pollinated according to the United Nations Environment Programme.

    • Why is the AIPP considered an entry-level into biodiversity?

Biodiversity is a complex subject BUT by supporting and protecting wild bees and other pollinators, through very simple actions, we protect wider biodiversity. The AIPP:

      • Is simple structure for multi-site corporates, SMEs and micro-enterprises.
      • Can be included as an entry-level Biodiversity Pillar within a Sustainability Strategy/Plan.
      • Provides a baseline focal point for SMART targets.
      • Highlights a series of evidence-based actions which can be mapped annually on the publicly available ‘Actions for Pollinators’ GIS system.
      • Provides guidance to make wise pollinator-biodiversity choices moving forwards. e.g. Don’t strip-out a species-rich meadow and replace with trees. If you’re not sure seek expert ecological advice.

Yes. The AIPP is aligned to both and can be integrated into any Environmental Management System or ESG/CSR structure.

    • Evidence Bases – why are we suggesting these actions?
    • What does science tell us about pollinators in terms of behaviours/needs?
      • A bee with a full tummy is only 40 minutes from starvation.
      • A queen bee in early spring needs thousands of flowers per day, and, needs lots of food (e.g. Ivy) pre-hibernation in autumn.
      • Different bees have different sizes of tongues, therefore need different sizes of flowers – Darwinism.
      • Bumblebees live in long grass and at the base of hedgerows, solitary mining bees live in bare soil (south facing earth banks) and cavity nesting bees live in stone walls or existing holes in wood.
      • Pollinator studies show: Bumblebees generally forage within 1km of their nest, but often much less. Solitary bees forage within 300m of their nest. An increase in 150m between nesting site and food (flowers) can reduce the number of viable offspring by more than 70%.
      • So pollinators need a Range of flowers, appearing in the flying Season (spring – autumn), in sufficient Volumes and within Proximity of the nest. R.S.V.P.
  • How can my business sign up to the AIPP and is there a cost?
    • How much does it cost?

There is no cost to sign up and all resources are free to use including the downloadable, print-ready signage.

    • Do I have to sign up to ‘Actions for Pollinators’ – biodiversity accountability GIS portal?

Yes. This is a mandatory requirement when you commit to support the AIPP.

      • The accumulated data on ‘Actions for Pollinators’ biodiversity accountability portal, shapes the AIPP evidence-based guidelines.
      • The data capture of actions runs from 1 January – 31 December in any given year. So it is important to input your actions promptly to reflect your actions within that specific year. Submission for 2022/23 must be on or before the 30 September 2023.
      • Please ensure a second member of staff retains your Username/Password details when you have registered. Once registered an email cannot be amended.
      • For multi-site businesses why not set up a specific email account such as [email protected] to consolidate and manage this biodiversity information. Please list your business name against each site e.g. Company X – Meadow 1.
      • If creating a garden on your business site please select the sector as ‘Business’  then ‘Company Name, Site Name (Garden)’.
      • To retain a record of your submitted pollinator actions, you can download an Excel (.csv) file from the ‘Manage my sites’ section of ‘Actions for Pollinators’. 
    • Is reporting to AIPP a mandatory requirement?

Yes. Once a year (by 30 September) businesses must report on evidence-based actions to support pollinators – maximum 250 words. We also require confirmation of mapped actions on ‘Actions for Pollinators’ – the biodiversity-accountability portal.

  • Is AIPP aligned to Bord Bia’s Origin Green Programme?

The AIPP covers multiple sectors. And yes Bord Bia’s Origin Green Programme includes the AIPP and ‘Pollinator Actions’ as part of member companies’ biodiversity targets (optional). 

  • We need expert/ecological advice to find out what is on our site – who would you recommend?

The AIPP cannot recommend a service or product. For expert ecological advice visit: The Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management

  • How many pollinator-friendly actions should our business work on per year?

ONE action in the first year. TWO (minimum) actions in each subsequent years. You’ll probably find you are already delivering multiple actions on your site(s). No physical site? Check out the Communication Actions.

  • What are the top ten actions our business can take to protect pollinators?

N.B. If you don’t have land/outdoor space to take Physical Actions go straight to the Communication Actions as there are lots of other opportunities to like/share/care.


1. Find out and protect what’s great for pollinators on your site(s) – a baseline. i.e. if you already have verges/strips/swathes/mini-meadows/meadows – leave as is and follow the reduced mowing regime.

N.B. Considering solar panels? Consider ‘grey space’ rather than ‘green space’. Although probably more expensive you will be protecting potentially key habitat. Decided upon a solar farm? REVIEW guidance HERE.

2. Reduce mowing of grass, cutting of hedgerows, and use of pesticides.

Review the biodiversity comparison table in the Meadow-Guideline-2023-WEB.pdf ( between a naturally regenerated wildflower area and an ornamental meadow.

3. Increase planting: retain/enhance native hedgerows, native pollinator-friendly trees, bulbs (Page 11), shrubs (Page 10), heritage fruit trees.

*DID YOU KNOW? These planting options have virtually NO pollen value (food): Daffodils, Tulips, traditional bedding plants – Geraniums, Begonias, Busy Lizzy, Petunias, Polyanthus or Salvia splendens. CHOOSE instead Perennials such as Heathers (wild bees ‘see’ swathes of colour), Annuals such as Bidens, Bacopas, and, or Herbs. MORE HERE

4. Create ‘homes’ for wild bees (south facing earth banks in verges, or old stone walls).


Want to align your Comms to what’s happening with the AIPP? REVIEW AIPP Key Messages & Campaigns 2023

5. Include AIPP as a ‘Biodiversity Pillar’ in your Sustainability Strategy/Plan with a baseline and simple SMART targets.

6. Champion biodiversity in your geographic area(s) – create a Green Team and/or nominate a Biodiversity Champion on your site(s). 

7. Indicate Pollinator/Biodiversity activity through Signage on site /online / on socials. 

8. Invite Employees to ‘Pledge Your Garden‘ (pots/planters) to celebrate World Bee Day on 20 May or Pollinator Week (June). 

9. Include as a requirement within your Procurement/Tendering process for suppliers to be signed up to an evidence-based biodiversity initiative such as the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan. Invite suppliers to sign up/take evidence-based actions. e.g. Is your Landscape Architect, Landscape Contractor, Grounds Maintenance company signed up and delivering actions? If not, why not?

Green/Biodiversity Procurement consider specifying:

(i) Eco-alternatives to pesticides. You will still need to spot-spray invasive species. REVIEW HERE how to manage and map invasive species on your site(s).

(ii) Provenance-Irish pollinator-friendly native trees N.B. a Blackthorn imported from Central/Eastern Europe will actually flower at the wrong time of year for our wild bees.

(iii) Peat-free compost. N.B. importing compost from another country may protect Irish Peatlands but is not helpful in the long term. 

(iv) Pesticide-free bulbs/shrubs/plants/trees.

(v) Avoidance of wildflower seed mixes: to sow/scatter (gift/sponsor) wildflower seed mixes is NOT a biodiversity action. It is a horticultural action. Non-native mixes may contain invasive species such as Black Grass – potentially devastating for our agricultural sector. Native mixes may have a high percentage of annuals so will need re-sown next year.

(iv) Avoid ‘considered’ invasive species: Fuchsia, Cherry Laurel, Rhododendron, Sycamore, Snowberry. Also problematic are: Butterfly Bush and Crocosmia as they spread into the wider landscape.

10. Engage with your Community create a Biodiversity Plan/Ecological~Pollinator Trail/Corridor, sponsor a Pollinator Map/Pollinator roundabout, develop with partners a Dispersed Urban Orchard (DUO), engage with Tidy Towns, your local sports club, GAA club, golf course, faith community, school(s).

  • What does the AIPP recommend as a first action to help wild bees?

Number 1 is Identify and protect existing areas that are good for pollinators. Your business’s outdoor space may already have areas (e.g. mini-meadow/meadow) that are providing excellent food and shelter for wild bees.

Then ask ‘Who has the keys to the lawnmower?’. NOT mowing grass and NOT cutting hedges as frequently are the best and cheapest way to provide food and shelter for wild bees. So a short or long flowering meadow is a great start! Think #Don’t Mow; Let it Grow. Great food sources for our wild bees are Dandelions, Buttercups, Daisies, Clovers etc. Top Tips for creating a wildflower meadow.

  • Would you recommend adding honeybee hives to our site(s)?

Honeybees are NOT under threat and as a managed pollinator are NOT considered a biodiversity action as part of the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan. Increased numbers of honeybees may create competition for food for wild bees (READ MORE HERE). A wonderful hobby, but if you are considering honeybee hives please refer to the relevant beekeeping associations for expert advice. READ MORE

  • Is purchased wildflower seed a good choice?

Purchased, non-native, (brightly coloured) wildflower seed (bulk/seed packets/bee bombs) is NOT considered helpful to the island’s landscape and may contain invasive species such as Black Grass – potentially devastating for our agricultural land. The AIPP recommends, where possible, natural regeneration of wildflowers through a change in management – reduced mowing and removal of cuttings to reduce soil fertility will allow wildflowers to flourish. 

N.B. Use of non-native wildflower seed is NOT a biodiversity action (it is a horticultural action) and should never be planted outside private property.

    • Thinking of sowing a wildflower meadow? READ the science behind why a naturally regenerated biodiversity meadow created by reduced mowing is much the preferred option.
    • Don’t have a native wildflower meadow? HERE’s why you should by Dr Maria Long Maria, Grassland Ecologist at National Parks and Wildlife Service.
    • Top Tips: generating a short-flowering meadow (Dandelion, Clover, Daisy, Buttercup) is a simple as cut every 4-6 weeks from mid-April. For a long-flowering meadow (either strip patches or larger areas) cut annually in September, letting the cuttings lie for a few days to allow any seed to drop and then remove. In large areas it is helpful to leave some small sections entirely uncut each year for other overwintering insects to nest. Remember – for both long-flowering and short-flowering options REMOVE the cuttings to reduce soil fertility and allow natural wildflowers to grow. N.B. For advice on winter grass growth/cutting please email [email protected]
    • Considering Yellow Rattle as part of meadow management? READ MORE HERE (Page 20) 
  • We have a native naturally-regenerated wildflower meadow on our site – should we keep it?

Yes. What an amazing biodiversity highlight. Leave it as is (i.e. don’t go planting an orchard!) – it is just perfect. READ MORE on the benefits of a naturally regenerated meadow vs an ornamental meadow (Page 6) N.B. If you have an established meadow maybe introduce Yellow Rattle (Page 20) to keep down grasses and encourage other naturally occurring wildflowers.

  • Would you recommend wildflower seed packets/bee bombs as a corporate gift?

Non-native wildflower seed packets and bee bombs may contain invasive species.

If you are considering corporate gifts for employees/community partners PLEASE CHOOSE AN ALTERNATIVE to wildflower seed packets/bee bombs such as pollinator-friendly bulbs (Page 11), fruit and vegetables (Page 13), or herbs (Page 12), a poster, a Bumblebee workshop, one of the swatches available through the National Biodiversity Data Centre’s online shop.

Local provenance is best for our wildlife and is especially important at a time when our native trees and plants are under attack from imported pests and diseases. See above information on why wildflower seed sowing is NOT helpful for our landscape and NOT a biodiversity action.

  • Is the hedgerow important on our site(s)?

Yes. Managing native species hedgerows for biodiversity is an incredibly important action for all businesses including agri-business farmer/suppliers. N.B. Beech and Laurel don’t count.

Native hedgerows are a vital source of food (pollen and nectar), nesting habitat and are used as a ‘flight path’ by wild bees (and other wildlife) to protect from wind, rain and predators.

The rule of thumb for hedgerows is RETAIN | MAINTAIN | RESTORE | CREATE.

Think 75/25: (Page 5) The ideal native hedge is made up of 75% Whitethorn and 25% of at least 4 other species. Choosing 4 of the planting options below, based on blossoming times, is perfect to provide food/shelter for wild bees and other pollinators from early spring to mid-summer. Blossoming Period | Goat Willow – March-April | Blackthorn – March-April | Wild Cherry – April-May | Crab Apple – April-May | Rowan – April-May | Whitebeam – May-June | Spindle – May-June | Whitethorn/Hawthorn – May-June | Dog Rose – May-July | Elder – June. The above can also be planted as single trees (Page 6). REMEMBER check the provenance is native to the island. e.g. a Blackthorn sourced from Central/Eastern Europe will flower at the wrong time of year for our native wild bees!

    • How should we manage our hedgerow(s)?

A pollinator friendly hedgerow should be:

      • Flowering at least 2.5m in height.
      • Trimmed in an ‘A’ shape.
      • Cut on a minimum 3-year cycle. N.B. cutting annually prevents flowering and fruiting, therefore no food for wild bees.
      • Cut (ideally) between November and January; and if it must be cut in other months (e.g. Health & Safety), cut sections in rotation so some areas remain undisturbed. RETAIN: Bramble and Ivy within hedgerows (Page 5) are great food sources for wild bees in summer and autumn.
  • Are (pocket) orchards helpful for wild bees?

Yes. Orchards, including pocket orchards (5 trees or less), are a great action! Choose a site that is has a low biodiversity value, e.g. amenity grassland. Where possible, choose Heritage fruit trees. N.B. Check out the Dispersed Urban Orchard (DUO).

OR if you are thinking of planting options found in a forest, check out native trees to the island.

  • Would you recommend installing a Green Roof?

Only the strongest of the 101 wild bee species will fly higher than the second floor so installing a wild bee garden as part of a ‘green roof’ may prove costly.

It may work for invertebrates and as an open urban staff retreat space at break/lunchtime.

A green roof can also be an important component of Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS). However always consider cost/benefit when considering a green roof on your building. READ MORE HERE.

  • How can we make our car park more pollinator friendly?

Car parks as an ‘entry point’ for customers and suppliers require a particular Health and Safety focus so the free downloadable print-ready signage is a must. REVIEW Car Parks for pollinators.

For raised beds/planters requiring low-growing plants options might include:

      • Bulbs: Crocus, Snowdrop and Grape hyacinth for early spring bumblebees.
      • Perennials: (yellows and yellow/white) Rudbeckia, and/or (purples/pinks) Wallflower, Calamint Comfrey, Catmint, Lavender or entire beds of Heather.
      • Low-growing shrubs: In less trafficked perimeter corner areas options include: Rosemary and Broom.
      • One-species bulk planting: which pollinators love (they can see swathes of colour) include: Lavender, Catmint or Heather. For areas along fences include the likes of: Dwarf Fruit trees, Comfrey and Lavenders and again bulbs including Grape hyacinth, Crocus, Snowdrop. A little trickier but planting which will flower later in summer might include Allium or Dahlias.
      • N.B. Daffodils, Tulips, Busy Lizzies have virtually no pollen value for wild bees. If you are planting these options then also add pollinator-friendly planting too.
      • For areas of grass (strips/patches/large swathes), reduce mowing to every 4-6 weeks (first cut mid April) to create a short flowering area (Dandelions, Clovers, Daisy and Buttercup) which is great for wild bees.
      • REVIEW more planting options HERE.
  • How can we encourage employees and suppliers to engage with the AIPP?

Review options with which your business may engage. REMEMBER any initiative must align with AIPP evidence-based actions.

    • INVITE employees to:
    • LEVERAGE suppliers/your ‘value chain’ by:
      • (i) insisting through your procurement process that ALL Suppliers including: Landscape Contractors/Grounds Maintenance/Asset Managers/Nurseries/Garden Centres are:
        • Signed up to AIPP
        • Following the evidence-based guidelines
        • And, reporting annually (250 words plus mapped actions) to AIPP. N.B. Both publicly available.
        • Incorporate the ethos of ‘Connecting Habitat; Protecting Habitat’ in all decisions.
      • (ii) incorporating AIPP/Biodiversity into your Procurement process and ensuring you specify:
        • Pesticide-free bulbs/shrubs/trees (including Herbicides/Insecticides – Neonicotinoids). N.B. You will still need to manage invasive species with the relevant recommended product in line with Government guidelines.
        • Peat-free compost (i.e. protecting a key habitat).
        • Provenance-proof – ensure Native Trees are from Ireland (not imported) – e.g. a Blackthorn from Central Europe will flower at the wrong time of year for our pollinators.
        • Avoidance of wildflower seed mixes – non-native mixes may contain invasive species, potentially devastating to our agricultural land. Native mixes will probably have a very high percentage of annual so will need to be re-sown next year.
        • Habitat protection – e.g. if considering solar panels locate on ‘grey space’ rather than ‘green space’ to protect a potential key habitat e.g. a species rich meadow in 3-5 years.
        • Retailers In-store products: ensuring that your offering to customers is in-line with evidence-based actions based on either the AIPP Top Ten planting guide or AIPP Pollinator Planting Code.
      • (iii) setting simple SMART in-company targets which might include:
        • How many suppliers do you have? 
        • Have you sent the AIPP Business Guidelines and Technical Appendix (currently being updated) to all suppliers? How many?
        • Have you sent relevant sectoral guidelines to suppliers? e.g. wind-farms, farm-suppliers (review agri-business information), or housing. Or if you have a strategic partnership for employees with e.g. a sports club.
        • How many are signed up to the AIPP? What is the increase in number signed up 2023/2024?
        • Where an education process is required have you ensure suppliers understand the difference between evidence-based actions and non evidence-based actions? How? Frequency of educational engagement?
        • How many suppliers have reported/mapped to AIPP? N.B. reporting/mapping to the AIPP is now mandatory as a business supporter and we now remove companies who have not reported by 30 September each year.
        • Is there an opportunity for ‘Connecting Habitat; Protecting Habitat’ and/or partnership to take AIPP physical evidence-based actions?
        • Are the above suggested targets included in your ESG/CSR for the year?
  • IN-COMPANY structures/initiatives
    • Develop a map of biodiversity present on site(s) and present to all staff online/on site/ on socials.
    • Not sure what’s on your site in terms of biodiversity/ecology? Conduct a Baseline Ecological Survey and repeat every 3-5 years. Identify an ecologist through the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management. Home | CIEEM
    • Nominate a Biodiversity Champion for your site(s) and/or create a Biodiversity Committee to co-ordinate efforts across Employees, Suppliers and Community.
    • Develop ‘Lunch & Learn’ sessions (as part of your ESG/CSR) on pollinators-biodiversity and/or a ‘Bring Your Wellies to Work’ initiative (community volunteering days).
    • Celebrate annually: No Mow May, World Bee Day (20 May), International Day for Biodiversity (22 May), National Biodiversity Week (May), Pollinator Week (June).
    • Host an annual ‘Wild Bee Garden’ competition for employees launched on 14 February (or after).
    • Develop an inter-company ‘No Mow’ competition between sites to create naturally regenerated species rich meadows (i.e. categories might include Big Meadows, Mini Meadows, Verges/Margins/Swathes) – the criteria must stipulate that it must be via a mowing regime NOT using sown wildflower seed. 
    • ‘Assign a Planter’ to employees to plant in spring/autumn.
    • Provide AIPP videos to staff to increase understanding of wild bees.
    • Co-ordinate PR campaigns to align with the AIPP Monthly messaging.
    • Develop an AIPP project with a school(s) Green Schools IrelandEco Schools Northern Ireland.
    • Co-ordinate an AIPP project within your business park/industrial area – check out the AIPP Ideas Hub (e.g. ecological corridor or pollinator trail).
    • How can we engage with our local community through the AIPP? 

Check out Tidy Towns and Community Gardens IrelandKeep Northern Ireland Beautiful or Ulster in Bloom and Business in the Community

The social innovation platform ChangeX draws together excellent social innovations (e.g. AIPP), funding partners (e.g. large corporates seeking to fund community investment projects), and community/volunteer groups seeking initiatives such as the AIPP to develop in their communities.

  • As an Agri-business what are the top five things our farm-suppliers can do to support pollinators-biodiversity?

Agricultural land represents circa 65% of our island’s landscape. The AIPP Farmland Guidelines provide five evidence-based actions to make farmland more pollinator-friendly:

1. Hedgerows: maintain native flowering hedgerows. Managing native species hedgerows for biodiversity is an incredibly important action for all agri-businesses. The rule of thumb for hedgerows is RETAIN | MAINTAIN | RESTORE | CREATE.

2. Wildflowers: allow wildflowers to naturally grow around the farm. Don’t Sow; Let it Grow!
3. Nesting habitat: provide nesting places for wild bees.
4. Fertilizer: Minimize artificial fertilizer use. Increase Clover coverage to fix nitrogen and provide food for pollinators. Other pollinator-friendly cover crops such as Phacelia and Mustard are also great for soil health helping to fix nitrogen or as green manures.
5. Pesticides: reduce pesticide inputs.

    • Is there research being done on farmland pollinators?

Yes the Protecting Farmland Pollinators project was set up to develop and test a whole-farm pollinator scoring system and identify which management practices on Irish farmland benefit pollinators. The aim is to provide farmers with evidence-based actions in creating small habitats to offer pollinators (and other biodiversity) food, shelter and safety on their farms. Protecting Farmland Pollinators was a European Innovation Partnership (EIP) funded by the Department of Agriculture, Food, and the Marine (DAFM) under the Rural Development Programme 2014-2020.
