Bees and SWM

Bees may be small but their impact is mighty—as they play an essential role in our global agriculture and ecology. By pollinating crops, including nuts, fruits and vegetables, bees are a critical component of our food supply. Unfortunately, in recent years, bee populations around the world have declined dramatically. Today, some bee species are even listed as an endangered species across various continents.


At SWM, we recognize this issue and our teams in France have taken action to help make a local positive impact. Employees at our locations in Quimperlé & Saint-Girons, have installed several bee hives, with the ambition of strengthening the local areas’ bee population. Each hive can house up to 60,000 bees.


This initiative aims to educate our employees about the importance of protecting these animals and maintaining biodiversity in their area. It also provides the opportunity to support and establish partnerships with local stakeholders, such as beekeepers who we partner with to advise on our bee program. 


This initiative is a win-win for the bees and for SWM—and it allows us to demonstrate our commitment to the environment and our local communities, while educating our employees on important sustainability issues.
