Koster Keunen production facility in Watertown Connecticut continues to make strides toward greater beeswax sustainability. Our facility is powered by a 660kw solar array consisting of more than 2500 solar panels producing most of the electricity used on site (88%!). This solar installation offsets almost 900 tons of carbon emissions per year. Working to meet the UN’s sustainability goal of “promoting resource and energy efficiency, sustainable infrastructure” we are responsible with resources and out commitments. Additionally, our beeswax processing uses only recycled water. Wax sourcing is a worldwide effort, and worldwide, water is often a scarce commodity. By using small amounts and not polluting precious supplies, Koster Keunen brings economic and environmental benefits to our sourcing locations without extracting what cannot be renewed. Koster Keunen’s ultimate goal is to provide our customers with the highest quality products by assuring performance, consistency, safety, and value. Manufacturing has had a checkered past, as people have been exploited for their labor and their land. Following the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, we are doing our part to rectify this divide. Our team is very proud to be among manufacturers who are working to promote sustainability for people, the environment, and a healthy future of responsible sustainable manufacturing.
