On Friday, June 22, 2018, Frankfurt School of Finance & Management officially introduced its bee project on the north terrace of the campus to the public. Professor Dr Nils Stieglitz, President of the business school, welcomed the guests, including Priska Hinz, Hessian Minister for Environment, Climate Protection, Agriculture and Consumer Protection.

“Sustainability as well as careful handling of our resources becomes more and more important. Hence, we tried to build our new campus as sustainable as possible. Because of that I am very happy to officially welcome our bees at Frankfurt School”, said Professor Dr Nils Stieglitz. In his speech he emphasised the importance of bees for the whole ecosystem as the animals are responsible for rich harvests and biodiversity.
