Green Globe No ‘Greenwashing’ 

We want to be honest and transparent. Therefore, we work with external auditors and consultants to check and improve our sustainability policy. Now, we aim to become Green Globe certified. Green Globe is the highest standard for sustainability worldwide. We are also working with Green Label Service, a Green Globe partner, to maximise our sustainability efforts.

Our main suppliers sign a declaration that they are committed to working with us towards a successful implementation of our Sustainable Purchasing Policy. 

trashcanwhatawaste What a waste  

We are saying NO to plastic straws and plastic water bottles. In due time you will be able to help yourself to the water tap to refill your own reusable bottle. It is healthy, better for the environment and free! We also stock biodegradable coffee cups, try to maximise our waste separation, and use environmentally friendly cleaning products.  

watertap Water 

Water-saving faucets help us to reduce water usage. Several of our guest rooms have a device showing how much water you use during a shower. No need to stop enjoying your shower, we just like to make you a bit more aware of how much litres per minute we all use! 

beingkind Being kind 

Being socially involved in the people around us and further away can have a huge positive impact. You probably haven’t noticed, but we have special toilet paper: The Good Roll! By using this 100% recycled paper, we help build toilets in developing countries. Our other suppliers are also held to sustainablesocially responsible, and regenerative project standards.

Feel free to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea. It’s organic and Fairtrade! We also always try to stock vegan and vegetarian lunch or dinner options in our Grab & Go corner.

We have numerous examples of how we keep our energy consumption as low as possible and reduce our CO2 emissions:  

  • We have solar panels. At the entrance of the hotel there is a panel where you can check out the production amountWe use green electricity in place of natural gas  
  • We have installed LED lights 
  • Bike rental is available year round 
  • E-car charging facilities are located directly in front of the hotel 
  • Public transport tickets are sold at the reception desk

We want to see our staff grow. We offer several trainings for employees to enhance their skills on the job as well as for personal development. In addition, sustainability training is mandatory for everyone. We offer interns an educational and inspiring learning environment.  

health&safety Health & Safety 

All necessary precautionary measures are taken to create a safe and healthy place for our guests and employees. We continually aim to improve working conditions, and well-being at work.
