At a time when environmental issues are at the forefront of global discussions, more and more organizations are recognizing the importance of biodiversity and its role in maintaining a healthy planet. At HAGBERG, we are developing an environmentally friendly service by conserving and restoring biodiversity on our clients' territories.
The importance of biodiversity
Biodiversity, the variety of life forms and ecosystems on earth, is essential for the long-term health of our planet. It plays a crucial role in maintaining the delicate balance of nature, from contributing to the resilience of ecosystems to providing resources for the different products we consume every day. Unfortunately, factors such as habitat destruction, pollution and climate change have led to a decline in biodiversity, and organizations from all sectors are aware of their role in reversing this trend and restoring natural diversity.
Ecosystem resilience and stability
A diversity of plant species in fields contributes to greater resilience to pests, diseases and extreme weather conditions. Different plants have distinctive root structures and nutrient requirements, so diversity improves soil structure and circulation of nutrients.
Pollinator health and crop productivity
Bees, butterflies and other pollinators use a variety of plant species as nectar and pollen sources. The symbiotic relationship between plants and pollinators confirms the importance of plant biodiversity for plant distribution and productivity.
Genetic resources for future plant development
Wild relatives of cultivated plants often have valuable traits such as resistance to disease and drought, as well as improved nutritional value. Conserving wild plants provides a genetic pool that helps to develop more resistant and productive plant varieties.
A balanced and beautiful landscape
Diversity of plant species gives the landscape an aesthetic appeal, encouraging people to connect with nature. Fields rich in plant biodiversity also serve as a refuge for a variety of wildlife species, offering a safe habitat in an otherwise intensively populated environment.
At HAGBERG, we support biodiversity conservation through a variety of personalized solutions.
We maintain an organic meadow in the area near Dreilinga mājas, which is home to a wide variety of native plants. A meadow is also to be developed and maintained in the area adjacent to the HAGBERG Learning Centre. In the Dzilnupes rental housing estate, we are actively taking care of the forest, planting pine trees, and we have established a lawn only where it is necessary - the rest of the area is being reforested by us.
When maintaining the greenery on our clients' sites, we eradicate invasive species. By using pesticides responsibly, we reduce damage to other species and pollinators, strengthening local biodiversity.
"To Mother Nature, every plant is its own, and weeds are just a concept coined by humans. We take into account the wishes and needs of our clients, while at the same time assessing whether we can improve existing greenery by introducing biodiversity principles," says Anda Straume, HAGBERG Landscaping Manager.
HAGBERG cares for biodiversity in its daily operations, ensuring a sustainable future both for local ecosystems and for future generations.
