U Parkhotel is striving to receive the golden Green Key certificate.

What is Greenkey:

Green Key is the number one international quality label for sustainable companies in the recreation and leisure sector and business market. As a hotel with the Green Key quality label we do our utmost to preserve the environment, without you having to compromise on comfort and quality. In this endeavour we go one step further than the legal requirements:

  • Our water and energy consumption is economical, the hotel rooms are fitted with energy savers; energy is only consumed when the guest is actually in the room. The bathrooms are fitted with water-saving taps and showersand we save energy using a thermal wheel. The latter takes hot air and circulates it throughout the building.
  • We only wash what is necessary and use eco-friendly cleaning products.
  • Moreover, 'Jeans on the Wall' represents a unique circular wall covering. 'Jeans on the Wall' is a wall covering made from recycled jeans.

How does Green Key work?
The Foundation for Environmental Education manages the Green Key Programme in Denmark. In the Netherlands, Stichting KMVK (Foundation for Environmental, Safety-related and Quality Labels) is responsible for its implementation. 

As a certified company we have to comply with the standards imposed by this foundation. It enforces the standards in association with independent inspectors that perform regular visits to conduct inspections. It also stores documentation in the online Green Key system, which any participant can consult.

The Green Key standardisation is linked to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 2015-2030.
