In continuation of Betterbee's efforts to lead the beekeeping industry to more sustainable practices, the organization has studied the logistics chain in an effort to green the process. Betterbee has partnered with local agencies to conduct an energy analysis and establish a plan for reducing the facilities energy footprint by 50 percent.
Betterbee is receiving all their energy needs through renewable resources, they have installed a geothermal system that meets more than 40 percent of the HVAC needs, and they are using a high efficiency automatic lighting system that has cut energy consumption by 70 percent.
For Betterbee paying the higher cost associated with supporting renewable energy, such as wind and hydro power, provides them with an ability to support local providers.
