Sustainability Project “Blühendes Gewerbe”: We are part of it!

Developing unused areas in company property as naturally as possible is the aim of a cooperative project in Friesland that was launched in 2022. PKV is also involved – and our contribution is impressive.

With the cooperation project “Blühendes Gewerbe” (Blooming Business), the district of Friesland, the Oldenburg Chamber of Industry and Commerce, the Kreishandwerkerschaft Jade (Jade District Chamber of Crafts) and Mobile Umweltbildung-MOBILUM (Mobile Environmental Education-MOBILUM) have invited businesses in the district of Friesland to develop parts of their company areas naturally this year. The aim of the measures carried out as part of the project is to preserve and promote biodiversity in the district of Friesland. If one adds up the areas of flowering meadows, flowering strips, orchards and natural meadows reported so far, one arrives at a total area of 53,635 m², which is equivalent to seven and a half soccer fields. The project is to be continued and expanded in the coming year. Here you can see the contribution reported by PKV – including both completed projects and measures that are currently being implemented.
