Fairmont is proud to partner with like-minded organizations to find inclusive, sustainable hospitality solutions. One of the most visible is our joint effort with Pollinator Partnership. We’re committed to providing financial support, raising awareness and creating and maintaining apiaries and wild bee "hotels", which is why we are home to a bee apiary managed by resident beekeeper, Thomas Clancy.
We’ve installed cameras and hive-tracking devices. This state-of-the-art technology tracks the number of visiting bees and the distance they travel each day. We collect data on the honey and analyze the flower, tree and plant nectars the bees prefer. Then we compare this data to the classification of color and grade of the honey according to the Pfund scale. This is just one more way Fairmont Hotels and Resorts is leading the way in hospitality sustainability.
By working with forward-thinking companies, we hope to encourage our guests to support our efforts in a variety of ways. Whether you choose to drive an eco-friendly vehicle, to host a green meeting or to sample a dessert made with our own honey, you're already taking action to save the environment in a proactive and sustainable manner. Thank you for helping us help the planet.
