The Court of Audit joined the pan-Slovenian project called Day of planting honey plants at the initiative of the Slovenian Beekeepers’ Association. On this occasion, we planted honey plants on our rooftop terrace, thereby providing the bees an additional food source for their development and to be able to further perform their precious work, namely the pollination.
The Slovenian Beekeepers’ Association has strong awareness of the importance of maintaining clean and healthy environment. It therefore decided to make a more decisive and active step towards the reduction of negative impacts on the environment caused by greenhouse gas emissions. Beekeepers have been engaged in the promotion of planting honey plants for several years and the Court of Audit, who has placed urban beehives on its rooftop quite some time ago and uses the honey produced by its bees for protocol purposes as gifts, decided to join this initiative.
We thus made a symbolical move and upgraded the project of rooftop beehives by planting some honey plants, such as lavender, showy stonecrop and raspberry. We thereby support and encourage the awareness and necessity of preserving biodiversity and ecosystems, as well as draw attention to the importance of ensuring food safety and facing climate change. We sincerely thank to the Urban Beekeepers’ Association for an excellent cooperation on the concerned project and many others. In this regard it is necessary to mention the tree which grows in front of the building of the Court of Audit and was planted by donations of our employees for future generations. Such projects additionally highlight the messages of the Court of Audit as an institution which strives to better use the public funds also in future.
