for the future
As a hotel chain, Bilderberg likes to contribute to a more sustainable world. After all, sustainable operations is something we do with the future in mind. With the use of organic ingredients and smart energy-saving measures, and by being aware of people and the environment, Bilderberg can rightly be called a "green" company.
Food waste challenge
Bilderberg is on a mission to reduce food waste. In 2019 we participated in the Food Waste Challenge. In six weeks time, we aimed to reduce our food waste concerning breakfast by 15%, and we succeeded. We will be working on this more actively in the coming years.
The environment in mind
Every month, Bilderberg welcomes thousands of guests to its hotels. That means a huge amount of laundry, waste and electricity. For years, Bilderberg has been running its hotels as responsibly as possible. That is why we ask our guests to tell us which towels need replacing, apply water-saving measures and use organic, biodegradable cleaning products. Together with our energy-saving measures and waste separation programme, we are therefore helping to create a better environment.
Too good to go
Recently, Bilderberg has given the Bilderberg Breakfast a new look. There is often food left and that is why Bilderberg offers the 'Magic Box', which contains different kinds of daily treats, which are literally 'Too Good to Go'. With the 'Magic Box' we reduce waste and CO2 emissions are reduced. The boxes are offered on the Too Good To Go app.
The Good Roll
Some hotels have been using The Good Roll since 2019. This is an organization that donates 50% to the construction of toilets and is made from 100% recycled paper, without chlorine, colors and fragrances. So: no forest clearing, less water consumption and less CO2 emissions. In addition, The Good Roll toilet paper is super soft and super strong. Our goal is to roll out The Good Roll in all hotels.
Green key certificate
The golden certificate for all hotels
Green Key is the largest global eco-label for tourist and business accommodation. A Green Key certificate shows a hotel's level of environmental awareness. For example, does the hotel separate its waste, does it use environmentally-friendly detergent and does it have energy-saving lighting? There are various different levels: bronze, silver and gold. All the Bilderberg hotels are proud to have been awarded a golden Green Key certificate.
