BEEing The Change

At GloryBee sustainability means people, planet, and prosperity.

Our purpose for doing business is to impact the world with positive change. Our 2016 Sustainability Report is our way of sharing that purpose with you. By tracking key data, we’re able to evaluate our sustainable performances each year. The numbers aren’t always what we would like them to be, but they’re a roadmap to help us become the change we seek in the world. 

Highlights from our 2016 Sustainability Report: People: Over half of employees at GloryBee receive professional development training. Planet: 303,682 lbs. were delivered by bike in 2016! Prosperity: We were able to donate over $300,000 in product and charitable donations. Read our Sustainability Report
