Enel X Bee Garden
On May 16, Enel X invited a group of guests to the Bee Garden for a guided tour, honey tasting and a chance to interact with the 180,000 bees that now live in the Bee Garden’s three active beehives, tended by apicolturaurbana.it. Enel X Head of Global Retail Francesco Venturini kicked off the morning-long event with a welcome speech.
Enel X Head of Environment Anna Santucci gave guests an overview of the importance of biodiversity for human survival, and what role cities can play in promoting biodiversity given that 68% of the world’s population is expected to live in urban areas by 2050. Riccardo Amoroso, head of e-City at Enel X, explained how biodiversity is one of the four pillars of Enel X’s sustainability offering for cities. Then it was time to head for the roof. Giuseppe Manno, the founder of apicolturaurbana.it, helped guests who wanted to interact directly with the bees get suited up in protective gear and showed them how it is done safely.
Urban environments depend on healthy natural ecosystems to thrive and biodiversity has a direct and palpable impact on people's wellbeing. Enel X has always paid close attention to sustainability, offering integrated, inclusive and circular solutions for greening cities to generate shared value over time.
