Land Betterment Corporation (“Land Betterment” or the “Company”), an environmental solutions company fostering positive impact through upcycling former coal mining sites to create sustainable community development and job creation, is proud to announce its partnership with 3BL Media to distribute the Company’s news and media releases. The partnership will aim at increasing the awareness of Land Betterment’s goals and innovative environmental and social actions by leveraging 3BL’s world-leading corporate social responsibility and sustainability news distribution network.

Land Betterment has developed a complete solutions-based lifecycle program to rehabilitate the environment of former, un-reclaimed and neglected coal mining sites throughout the Central Appalachia and Southern Indiana regions, then repurpose the land to support sustainable businesses that serve the local community and a displaced, skilled labor force.  Central Appalachia has become a major impact region as the United States increasingly transitions away from coal-based fuels. As a result, the landscape remains littered with an enormous number of environmental liabilities, and communities disproportionately suffer from a lack of job and economic opportunity.

”We’re really excited to be partnering with such a well renowned group as 3BL Media to help us communicate our corporate responsibility initiatives rooted from our environmental and socially conscious business model. We are confident the partnership will enable us to expand our network and further collaborate with other solution-based individuals and companies to create real solutions for a region in need of forward thinking,” stated Mark Jensen, Executive Chairman of Land Betterment Corporation.  With 3BL being the world leader in purpose-driven communications and having the broadest and best audience of corporate leaders, thought leaders, media, investors and policymakers, we don’t think we could have a better partner.”

Land Betterment anticipates its communications through 3BL to be focused around its
portfolio of business lines that are highly-scalable and provide a positive impact to the environment, the community and its stakeholders.  The Company’s various business lines are cultivated from the following corporate pillars:

  1. Environmental Solutions Division that generates service revenue for reclaiming and remediating disturbed land for mining companies, reclamation surety companies, or state and federal agencies; and

  2. Product revenue from its Sustainable Development Division that currently includes the following business lines either producing or in development:

    • Betterment Recycled Mulch – a rubber recycling company that primarily utilizes tires from mining and industrial activities to create high-quality, sustainable ground cover.

    • Betterment Spirits – through its COAL Craft Spirits brand, is a small batch, organic, farm-to-bottle craft distillery focused on environmental stewardship, quality and perfectionism.

    • Ekō – an ecological affordable development company using innovative solutions to upcycle land for the community through modern, energy-efficient modular homes.

    • Betterment Metal Recovery – a metal recovery and recycling company of prior mining and industrial sites to be recycled for new and useful purposes.

    • Betterment Harvest – a sustainable farming company that upcycles land to provide the highest quality of agriculture.

    • Pollinate – are bee farms and processing facilities established on protected sites upcycled from former mining areas to work synergistically with the Company’s Environmental Solutions and Betterment Harvest efforts.

Jensen added, “As a team with over 13 years of experience in the region we saw a clear and present need for sustainable jobs and an opportunity to tap into the heart of one of the most talented workforces in the country. Our goal was to build a business that could provide simple sustainable solutions for the problems present in the region. Additionally, we are very excited to communicate these solutions with 3BL Media and to further collaborate with a growing impact investment community at a time when social benefit is becoming an increasingly important criteria in the investment process.  Now more than ever, total return and success of investments are measured by financial metrics as well as social and environmental benefit, and Land Betterment can provide a very efficient solution for all of its stakeholders.”
