The environmental idea has played a central role at TriOS Mess- und Datentechnik GmbH since the company was founded more than 20 years ago. In the course of our new buildings, many native trees and shrubs have been planted, and our own lake has been converted into a biotope, thus creating a habitat for many birds, insects and other animal species. A biotope in the middle of a commercial area. We have shown that business and nature are not mutually exclusive.

Our latest project has been given the name Tri-Bee by the employees. It is about the creation of an optimal habitat for bees. For years we have been concerned about the disappearance of habitats for bees. We heed the saying:

"Once the bee disappears from the earth, man has only four years to live. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more people. "(Quotation Albert Einstein, 1949).

In order to make our small contribution here, we have replanted about 200 fruit trees (pears, apples, cherries, plums, etc), 100 vines and a large number of maples, limes, oaks and chestnuts as forage plants on the company premises. In addition, we will set aside a portion of our open space as a wet meadow where many wildflowers will find a new home. These will not only serve as a source of food for our industrious new 'employees', the bees, but also for many other insects, and thus for the entire fauna.

For the professional implementation of the project we have decided to cooperate with the start-up company OL-BEE UG from Oldenburg (, which will take care of our bees with a lot of expertise. The bees will find a home on our grounds all year round, and not only for a few months during the flowering season, as is very common. The mixture of plants present will provide enough food for the bees all year round.
