We foster environmental projects that generate shared value for the community and the ecosystems where we operate.

Community Beekeeping Program

The Community Beekeeping program was established to provide local beekeepers with native and planted forests associated with Colbún’s facilities, so that they can take advantage of flowering for honey production purposes.

The purpose is to turn what in many cases is an environmental liability – plantations arisen from Colbún’s compensation efforts – in opportunities to promote local development and biodiversity.

The Company owns approximately 6,500 hectares of native forests and 900 hectares of planted forests.
