Saving the Planet One Bee at a Time

Feature Story

​​​​​​​​​​​Honeybees are dying at alarming rates due to pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and disease. As pollinators of over 100 fruit and vegetable crops in the United States, honeybees are essential to the ecosystem.

To help address the problem, Clarion Partners has teamed up with beekeeping specialists Best Bees​ to install 30 beehives on 17 properties including multifamily, retail, and office. The bees improve biodiversity by pollinating plants in the surrounding community, and as a bonus, each hive produces 30 pounds of honey that is packaged and provided to tenants.

With a network of 50 beekeepers who manage beehives in 12 cities, Best Bees Company, started in 2010, installs and maintains honeybee hives on commercial and residential properties in urban centers across the U.S. with a mission to improve bee health and expand the bee population. 

This program is just one more way we are investing in the sustainability, health and wellness of our properties, and we will continue to identify new programs to add to the program over time.
