Sir Albert Amsterdam, the boutique hotel located in De Pijp, the Latin quarter of Amsterdam and consisting of 90 rooms, will be proud to be certified for its eco friendly hospitality by Green Globe for your 3rd year in a row.
“ 2016 in particular has become a very successful year” says Sebastiaan Schaafsma, President of Sir Albert’ s Green Team. “ We have been very proud of the team attempts put into the hotel’ s durability program. People in every layer from the organization are aware of the impact their particular actions have on the environment. ”
The hotel’ s i9000 Green Team organized a ‘ Green month’ to raise awareness using hotel staff. The back of home areas were decorated with paper prints that shared information on sustainability; an unique biological (organic) green lunch has been served whilst green flags established a festive atmosphere.
Many team members participated by writing great thoughts in the suggestion package on how to make our hotel procedures more sustainable, of which we would like in order to highlight a couple that have been implemented lately:
– The House cleaning department started to collect all partly-used mineral water bottles from our guest areas to water the flowers plus plants in and around the hotel property, saving the use of tap water for this purpose;
– The Breakfast group is re-using the Biological (organic) jam glass jars for small portions of fresh fruit salads to prevent using disposable packaging;
– The kitchen team used to turn on the grill as soon as they wandered into the kitchen. They now lighting the grill just 30 minutes prior to service to save on charcoal and Carbon dioxide emissions;
– The box for empty batteries plus printer cartridges is placed in the back again office to make it as easy as possible for the group to recycle. The money earned through recycling the cartridges is given to charity.
They are just a few examples we would like to share the best way practices as these can easily be implemented simply by any hotel property around the world. It’ s in the little things to create a big difference!
