Spotlight Target Area: Biodiversity Protecting and enhancing biodiversity around the company’s sites and farms of suppliers is a key component of Kepak’s agriculture pillar. Kepak is a founding member of the Irish Business & Biodiversity platform and a supporter of the All-Ireland Pollinator plan. Together with Trinity College Dublin and the Irish Research Council, Kepak has funded pioneering research to enhance pollinator diversity. As part of this project, Kepak designated biodiversity champions at site level who conduct and monitor biodiversity. Treatment plots have been established in short and long grass meadows, with wildflower and herb beds nestled in green areas surrounding Kepak sites, becoming home to native Irish honeybees. The company conducted biodiversity research at Kepak Farm which acts as a knowledge transfer centre for implementing farm friendly biodiversity actions via its partner farming network. Kepak is also an operational partner of the BRIDE valley biodiversity project. The project aims to design and implement a results-based approach to conserve, enhance and restore habitats in lowland intensive farmland.
