On 19 October 2018, in partnership with the HOP! association BIODIVERSITY, the Management at Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport invites the airport community to the Maison de l’Environnement (Environmental and Sustainable Development Resource Centre) at Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport to discover the fauna and flora inhabiting the airport’s 3000 hectares of grounds.

A three-stage event which follows two years of observations and assessments of the grasslands around Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport.

  • Overview of the observations carried out of the fauna and flora
  • Official opening of the beehives on the roof of the Maison de l’Environnement by the Groupe ADP Sustainable Development Department
  • Exhibition of photographs taken by employees and pictures showing the Hop! association’s work Biodiversity in the different French airports

By highlighting the airport’s initiatives aimed at encouraging biodiversity, the purpose of this day is to thank the staff from the companies working at the airport having participated in these field observations (Groupe ADP, Air France, SNARP, members of the environmental partners’ club, etc.) and to make the other staff and companies aware of the initiatives underway.
