Beam Suntory's Efforts Help Protect Water in St. Croix
Beam Suntory’s efforts to protect water are focused on watershed planning, establishing natural water sanctuaries, and reducing water use in water-stressed areas. St. Croix, a water-stressed area, values fresh water as a critical natural resource. Like most of our Caribbean neighbors, our Cruzan Rum operation in St. Croix collects rainwater in roof catchments and cisterns for use as a source of fresh water. We have also commissioned a new process water treatment and re-use system which will reduce our annual usage of island fresh water reserves up to 75%.
Kentucky Team Helps Protect Bee Population in the Spirit of Growing for Good
Pollinator insects, such as bees, are a vital part of the natural ecosystem, as they help propagate many plants and even the food we eat. Last year, a large colony of American Honeybees was discovered in the walls of a Jim Beam production building. Our Kentucky team safely removed the bees and relocated them to beehives, creating a bee yard near the Jim Beam distillery. This discovery sparked a new initiative – to transform more than 15 acres of weedy grass fields to a diverse, native wildflower prairie where the bees can form self-sustaining colonies.
