Pedal power reduces noise, pollution, and saves time on island nation of Bermuda
Sturdy, dark blue bicycles bearing ST-GERMAIN® elderflower liqueur branding serve as a sustainable solution for employees who work at the Bacardi Limited worldwide headquarters in Bermuda.
Employees use the company-provided bicycles as a means to travel around the world’s largest privately help spirits company’s campus and local community as part of the ongoing Bacardi Limited “Good Spirited: Building a Sustainable Future” environmental initiative.
“The use of bicycles as a mode of transportation to and from work is important for us because pollution and the use of fuel is reduced, the noise level is minimal, it saves time parking, and we can get our exercise at the same time,” says Clara Fay, Director of Corporate Affairs, for Bacardi in Bermuda. “The bikes were popular with our staff, who use them on company business in the city and for running errands where they would normally use a car or scooter. This is just one of the many ways we can help to build a more sustainable future where we live and work.”
The Bermuda National Trust, a non-profit working to preserve the natural, architectural and historic treasures of Bermuda, recently recognized Bacardi for the bicycles initiative with an Awareness Award for advocating green programs. “Bacardi has a deep and abiding commitment to sustainability and the Bermuda National Trust is pleased to recognize Bacardi for the sustainable initiative that provides employees bicycles to travel around Hamilton,” says Lawrence Doughty, Conversation Officer.
