For almost 30 years, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts has been committed to proactively protecting its local environments. In 2008, Fairmont saw an opportunity to help support honey bee health by placing beehives on rooftop gardens. Today, Fairmont’s Bee Sustainable program features over 20 honey bee apiaries and more than 20 wild pollinator bee hotels at Fairmont locations worldwide. Many hotels are also known for nurturing on-property herb and vegetable gardens, which contribute to pollinator health.

Fairmont Testimony

Fairmont Hotels & Resorts has been committed to protecting the environment for close to 30 years. A big part of that commitment is looking for new creative ways to enhance its award-winning Fairmont Sustainability Partnership, now part of Accor’s Planet21 program.

Fairmont’s approach combines leading operational efforts aimed at reducing overall impact on the planet with forward-thinking and innovative programs promoting responsible tourism. As a core part of the Fairmont DNA, this commitment to environmental stewardship includes the Bee Sustainable program – a bee-focused initiative that aids habitat protection, pollination of gardens and flowers, and helps to support honey bee health.
