Siemens gives ‘green light’ to creating a wildlife garden
Siemens at Sopers Lane, Poole, has been designing and manufacturing telecommunications and electronic equipment for over 50 years. It’s the place where the bar code was invented, and where traffic signals for many of the world’s major cities were developed. It is now a destination for a wonderful Wildlife Garden working in partnership with Dorset Wildlife Trust.
Building on the success of our Great Heath project, the work we’re undertaking with Siemens is a natural extension of greenspace into the urban environment. Our relationship with Siemens started with their staff wellbeing in mind, though organising volunteer days we provide exclusive access to the 44 nature reserves. Due to the success of these days, and with the support from the senior management team we are now helping Siemens bring all these unique benefits of a wildlife garden to their doorstep in Poole.
We’ll not only be advising our partners at Siemens over the course of the design and creation of this unique space for their employees. We’ll help them create a space which is sympathetic to the site and the indigenous species for generations to come.
In the words of David McIntosh Head of Business Transformation at Siemens: "We share your enthusiasm for this partnership going forward, and I am personally looking forward to working with you and your colleagues."
