Movenpick Hotel Den Haag-Voorburg, Netherlands: green practices earn Green Globe recertification ( LOS ANGELES, California - Green Globe announced recertification of the Movenpick Hotel Den Haag-Voorburg in the Netherlands. The property has demonstrated corporate social responsibility and innovation in the fields of operational efficiency on multiple levels. The success of Movenpick Hotels&Resorts’ sustainability efforts lies in its integration into their business strategy.

“We are very proud about the prestigious Green Globe award,” said Jean-Luc Baeriswyl, General Manager at the Movenpick Hotel Den Haag-Voorburg, “Achieving Green Globe recertification is a great milestone for this property, strengthening our efforts to be fully in line with the Movenpick standard. This achievement would not be possible without the dedication of our entire team, and we will continue to do our best to preserve and contribute to the future for generations to come.”

A long-term sustainability management system is in effect at the Movenpick Hotel Den Haag-Voorburg, and energy and water consumption is recorded and benchmarked. Environmentally-friendly actions are at the heart of all operations through initiatives such as the introduction of biodegradable pens, wooden key cards, electric scooter rentals, ecological bathroom amenities, and Movenpick Fair Trade Coffee. Guests are encouraged to support a carbon-neutral stay and to minimize their environmental footprint; cleaning of bed linen and bathrooms are provided on request, or every two days. At Movenpick Hotel Den Haag-Voorburg special effort is being made to choose local producers and suppliers adhering to eco-friendly practices.

The Movenpick Hotel Den Haag-Voorburg actively supports the Climate Neutral Group, a social venture that strives towards a 100% climate neutral world. This non-profit organization assists businesses in making the transition to climate neutrality, and develops climate-neutral devices and products for their customers. The Climate Neutral Group promotes various renewable energy projects, such as “The Paradigm Project,” aiming to improve health and incomes in Kenya. By replacing traditional cooking on an open fire with clean and sustainable cook stoves, CO2 emissions are reduced and carbon credits generated.
