The Excellence Centre for Honey Production is just one of many initiatives realised to improve site sustainability at the factory. Other activities include handmade bird and hedgehog boxes dotted around the campus by Bentley colleagues, 100 trees planted around the factory grounds and an impressive ‘seed bombing’ effort which saw more than 5,000 bulbs of daffodils planted across the campus to enhance flora and fauna onsite which have yielded extraordinary benefits for the local environment.
Peter Bosch, Bentley’s Board Member for Manufacturing, comments:
“Not only are these amazingly hard workers contributing to our local biodiversity, in my opinion, they are also the producers of some of the finest quality honey in the world, taking inspiration from their counterparts in our Excellence Centre for Vehicle Finish.
“Next year, we are celebrating five years of carbon neutrality for our site in Crewe, and biodiversity plays a part in this success. While we celebrate this, we don’t rest on our laurels and constantly strive for new initiatives to improve our environmental impact even further, to ensure our site and end-to-end business operations reflect our ambitions to become the leader in sustainable luxury mobility.”
