Fairmont’s Global Effort to Protect Bees
Please click on the links below to learn about Fairmont’s efforts to protect bee populations from Colony Collapse Disorder through building bee hives and bee hotels for honey bees and solitary bees. Hand in hand with our bee initiatives are our herb garden initiatives. Together, through our Sustainability Partnership Program, we are providing bees with habitat and pollinating our local gardens, and incorporating local and freshly grown produce into our menus.

Fairmont’s Herb Garden Initiative

Chateau Whistler’s Bat Hotel Initiative on their Audubon Certified Golf Course
Fairmont Chateau Whistler installed bat hotels on their golf course to benefit bats, the community, farmers, gardeners and the ecosystem as a whole through providing a warm, safe location for bats on the course. Previously, on the same course, Chateau Whistler opened up corridors to allow bears to pass through without having forced confrontation with golfers. An artificial marsh is the full-time home of a resident beaver. Additionally, tree clippings are piled up into "rabbitats," that attract predators like coyotes and other animals to enrich the biodiversity of the golf course.

The bat hotels give bats a home and in turn they eat thousands of insects. Bat hotels give bats an alternative to our houses thus reducing the chance of human to bat contact. Bat populations have decreased significantly (especially with WNS) and bat houses are helping to provide secure habitat.

Fairmont Peace Hotel – The Million Tree Project
Fairmont Peace Hotel committed as a corporate sponsor to the “Million Tree Project” of Roots & Shoots: planted 2,000 trees in the lands of Inner Mongolia named “Fairmont Forest”.

Roots & Shoots’ Million Tree Project encourages individuals and organizations to improve their positive environmental impact by planting trees in the desert lands of Inner Mongolia where the previously lush landscape is now a rapidly expanding desert. Fairmont Peace Hotel became involved, planting 2,000 trees in an area now named “the Fairmont Forest” and involving their colleagues in the planting phase as well as the 10 year commitment made by the hotel to maintain the trees.

Fairmont Peace Hotel also launched a “Greening at Peace” package to provide guests the opportunity to offset their travel emissions and bring about a positive impact on the environment. For each guest who stayed with the Greening at Peace room package, Fairmont Peace Hotel donated 10 trees on behalf of the guest – including planting and maintenance of the trees for 10 years.

Fairmont Peace Hotel invited local residents to learn how the hotel incorporates environmentally friendly operations into daily operations with a behind-the-scenes hotel tour with various local and international partners. Shanghai’s Roots & Shoots were invited to give a presentation introducing their projects and their collaboration with Fairmont Peace Hotel. Guests were encouraged to explore more about the project.
