RAISE AWARENESS DIFFERENTLY
RALLYING FOR BIODIVERSITY/h1>
COMMITMENT N°8 - SOCIETAL AND GENERAL INTEREST
We’re well aware of the plight of the bees, so now the various CEPOVETT sites are home to a collection of hives that can be found near their premises.
This initiative allows our employees to experience our quest for biodiversity first hand. The programme raises awareness of the relationship between nature and the urban environment and is the symbolic guiding principle of the solid commitment the company is making. Bees are an environmental indicator, raising awareness among our stakeholders and thus pushing them towards taking action.

An experimental apiary in Madagascar
The production site has 13 Malagasy hives and 11 modern hives, including two very sophisticated Australian models. This new model of hive has a transparent wall allowing us to check the level of honey in the hive without opening it. Pre-formed clear plastic cells, installed on frames fitted with taps, can be split in two for harvesting. When the bees have done their share of the work, we need only turn on a tap for the honey to flow.
"This workplace chicken coop is an original idea and shows us the importance of well-being. I am delighted to be able to make my omelette with fresh eggs from the company's free-range hens. It really makes us aware of what hens eat as well as the need to combat food waste."
"It's just incredible to imagine producing honey on the rooftops of Paris; we're welcoming nature into the city. I'm delighted to be part of this collaborative and meaningful project that highlights the importance of environmental conservation, and the responsibility the present generations have towards the future generations."
“Between ethics and aesthetics, art and life sciences, this innovative and meaningful initiative draws on many art disciplines to change our perception of nature. Bees are at risk of extinction, so it was obviously important for me to symbolically represent and highlight their plight and to decorate their homes by painting the walls. I thought of a panda, which is a protected species, as “a guard of the apiary”, itself acting as a protector. It carries a message of solidarity and communion between species”.
