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, organising volunteer days, we provide exclusive access to Dorset Wildlife Trust’s 44 nature reserves. Siemens staff come out and work well with us, helping us to keep those reserves in excellent condition.
Due to the success of these days, and with the support of their senior management team, we are now helping Siemens bring all the unique benefits of wildlife gardening to their own 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 also work with their Staff in creating a space which is sympathetic to the site and will support and increase the indigenous species thereabouts for future decades.
Siemens have already supported habitat creation at Sopers Lane with last May’s ‘Big Bat-Box Build’ with Dorset Wildlife Trust. This year’s wildlife garden creation is another step forward in our work together for wildlife. In the words of David McIntosh Head of Business Excellence for Mobility Division: "We share your enthusiasm for this partnership going forward, and I am personally looking forward to working with you and your colleagues”
