Like many Americans, I’ve started travelling again. Flying over the Midwest recently on my way to a conference in New York, it was hard not to be awed by the sight of mile after mile of cropland – around 180 million acres – growing just two crops, corn and soy.
Some Thoughts on Fiduciary Responsibility, Mutually Assured Destruction and Small, Diversified Organic Farms
Since the slow money movement’s first low interest loan to a local organic farm in 2010, more than $80 million has flowed to over 800 small farms and local food businesses, via volunteer-led groups in a few dozen communities. Events of the last few years have emphatically accentuated our shared concerns.
Bees may be small but they play a big role in our ecosystem. While bees are renowned for their role in providing high-quality food and products used in healthcare, their greatest contribution is the pollination of nearly three-quarters of the plants that produce 90% of the world’s food.
Imagine walking out of work for some fresh air and seeing a couple of bees flying around and then looking up to see a massive hive containing thousands of them. That’s exactly what happened to an employee at our Green Bay Broadway mill. After it was reported, the first call was made to pest control to get rid of it. Once pest control identified the species of the bees, it was determined that it would be extremely valuable to the environment to relocate them vs. exterminating them. It turns out that the hive contained over 14,000 bees!
Last month, Invesco hosted a “Live at the Hive” virtual behind the scenes event with our partner Bee Downtown to celebrate Earth Day. Employees enjoyed watching the Invesco bees in action including a live Q&A session with Leigh-Kathryn Bonner. #WorldBeeDay #GreenerPossibilitiesTogether

Imagine mornings without orange juice, summer picnics without strawberries or holiday dinners without apple pie. Such a future is possible if we don’t take collective action to begin restoring pollinator habitats around the world.
How many offices do you know that have three bars, an active beehive and an archive that preserves 158 years of a company and family legacy? These are just some of the features that earned the Bacardi North America offices in the city of Coral Gables, FL, bragging rights are one of the coolest offices in South Florida. The recognition, earned for two consecutive years, comes from the South Florida Business Journal.
An employee-led beekeeping club is bringing good energy and a love for nature to renewable energy company Ørsted.
COPENHAGEN, Denmark, October 8, 2020 /3BL Media/ -A protesting hum greets members of the Ørsted Beekeeping Club every Tuesday after work. Covered head to toe in beekeeper suits, including hats and face nets, they pad softly between the beehives that stand on a patch of tall grass and flowers amidst Ørsted’s modernist office buildings, north of Copenhagen.
