Since the start of October, the headquarters of A.S.Adventure in Hoboken have been buzzing, and literally at that! The site has become home to some 100,000 bees, sharing two hives. This is how A.S.Adventure decided to contribute to the preservation and stimulation of biodiversity.
Archi 2000 is an architecture practice based in the Bois de la Cambre. It has always been eco sensitive and pursues since 2014 the obtention of the ecodynamic company label in the Brussels Region. For the moment it has been graded a one-star company (on three possible) by the organising committee. The perspective of a partnership with Bee-O-Diversity made us very enthousiasts. We value very positively the impact of the hives on the biggest green space of Brussels. Our bees have their own active part in a better pollinisation on the whole surface of the Bois de la Cambre.
One enterprise centre, one company that focuses on the issue of CO2 emissions, and one organic market who joined forces to support the BEEODIVERSITY project and protect bees. 2 bee colonies were given a home on the roof of Atelier des Tanneurs to raise awareness amongst the occupants of the enterprise centre and the numerous people who attend events organised there.
For several years now, Caméléon has been putting the magnificent green roof of its eco-built premises at the disposal of bees. The hive that graces its roof is home to 4 colonies of bees that see to the conservation of plants in Woluwé!
Cofinimmo and Sopra Steria decided to BEEODIVERSITY, one in Brussels and one in Groot Bijgaarden. A fine example of partnership between landlord and tenant and this for the good of the environment, bees, the neighbours and the other occupants of the building!
EDF Luminus introduced 12 bee colonies to 4 energy production sites to preserve the surrounding biodiversity. The sites in question are located in Flanders and in Wallonia. All in all, the bees EDF Luminus adopted cover an area of 2800 ha.
Elia has been involved in the protection of the environment for many years, more specifically via its Life-project.
Knokke-Heist is the first town in Belgium to appoint bees as guardians of the environment.

In recent years, Sibelga has taken numerous environmental initiatives on its Quai des Usines site: windmills, a passive building, solar panels, thermal panels, two cogeneration installations.... These initiatives have now been crowned with three colonies of bees that will benefit from the green roof of the passive building!
Did you know that…? One in four Belgians is in contact with Sodexo every day! And now that BEEODIVERSITY is after delivering 3 bee colonies to the new Sodexo site in Brussels, which also features an urban potager and a bug hotel, numbers are sure to swell.
For over 125 years, Spa Monopole has been running an extensive programme to protect the environment and the water resources of Spa. The Spa mineral waters conservation area currently covers an area of more than 13,000 hectares.
The roofs of Tour et Taxis produce energy via their solar panels and help to conserve biodiversity now that two bee colonies have decided that this is the place to be. The colonies overlook Brussels, its gardens, parks and a mythical site.
Flaxseed is the mainstay of the activities of the Vandeputte Group which produces soap and detergents, on the one hand, and oil and oleochemical derivatives, on the other hand. Vandeputte is therefore well aware of the importance of pollination and houses 2 bee colonies on its site in Mouscron.
Within the framework of a comprehensive project to protect the environment and biodiversity on its site in Braine l’Alleud, UCB introduced 5 bee colonies who will pollinate some 20 billion flowers a year…
UCB also wanted to raise awareness amongst its staff by involving them in the project. To help them, BEEODIVERSITY organised honey-sampling sessions and visits to the colonies.
