Our commitment: to enhance biodiversity on 5 million hectares of farmland

See our progress at a glance

Our work with growers and partners around the world is delivering measurable results.

The challenge

Farming depends on biodiversity. It’s vital for pollination – more than a third of the world’s agricultural crops depend on pollination by bees and insects1. We need to help farms become more productive, and farmers to protect and improve the biodiversity around their fields.

In many parts of the world, changing agricultural and horticultural practices have altered the landscapes of both cities and countryside. As a result, farm landscapes often lack the diversity and abundance of flowers and plant life that wildlife and pollinators need. We need to help farmers protect and improve the biodiversity around their fields.

Our commitment

To help biodiversity flourish

grower hands

Farmers can create environments in which pollinators flourish: a range of foraging habitats with diverse, rich nectar and pollen nutrition, as well as adequate nesting areas. We’re working with farmers to create and support habitats like flowering field margins, meadows and hedgerows to help wildlife thrive.

Protecting and enhancing biodiversity

Operation Pollinator is an international biodiversity program to boost the number of pollinating insects on commercial farms. It works by creating specific habitats, tailored to local conditions and native insects.
