We are increasing our commitment for flowing waters. Running the garbage collection boat CollectiX on the river Danube is the kickoff for several events and cleanups in 2021.
To give something back to society and the environment
Nature conservation and biological diversity – this is what the Audi Environmental Foundation has stood for for a decade with a large number of projects.
Planting trees against climate change - this is the idea behind the research project Oak forest, one of the first projects supported by the Audi Environmental Foundation.
Every year, around 10 million tonnes of plastic waste finds its way into our oceans. As a result, thousands upon thousands of marine animals perish. Together with Clear Rivers from Rotterdam, the Audi Environmental Foundation is committed to reducing plastic waste in waterways.
Research on bee mortality - Smart HOBOS helps here. The high-tech beehive of the Audi Environmental Foundation collects valuable data.
As part of the environmental project Steles of Biodiversity, old transformer houses are being transformed into new habitats for native animal species. In this way, environmental education sites are created that bring biodiversity and species diversity closer to the visitor.
The Audi Environmental Foundation supports a project of the Fachzentrums (FZ) Bienen (Bee Research Center) at the Bayerischen Landesanstalt für Weinbau und Gartenbau (LWG) (Bavarian State Institute for Viticulture and Horticulture) in the promotion of beekeeping in schools. The project is aimed at schools that do not keep bees yet.
Experimental setup in different metropolises for intelligent climate change research.
In recent years, there has been a dramatic depletion of bee populations. There are many reasons for this. The reasons include the increase in numbers of varroa mites in beehives, a lack of food supply or the increasing use of pesticides. In addition, there is a lack of young beekeepers, who can take on this problem.
