Golden Tulip introduced a group sustainability standard called ‘Greenkey’ to rank the efforts made by hotels in the group.

Properties with the Green Key standard adhere to strict responsibilities for sustainability, environmental protection and corporate social responsibility. The standards under Green Key aim to improve internal development of staff as well as improving engagement and communication with guests and corporate customers with the sustainable mechanisms of the company, including: water use, energy and gas use, sustainable purchase of hotel supplies, etc.

In 2010 Golden Tulip Vlissingen received the Gold award for all efforts undertaken in the previous 12 months and were able to repeat the effort in 2011 and 2012.

Green team

Golden Tulip adopted Ecompter as their carbon management tool in 2011 to provide their ‘Green Team’ with more up-to-date and detailed data.

Green Team members within the organisation frequently occupy different jobs roles but the Ecompter application can be easily accessed and used by all so that reports can be pulled quarterly for Golden Tulip.

Carbon emissions awareness and engagement has grown extraordinarily since Golden Tulip began using Ecompter reports and Golden Tulip plan to incorporate more frequent CO2 management as a result.

Results

The total carbon footprint of the group decreased from 574.000 CO2 kg ing January 2010 to 420.000 CO2 kg December 2012 – a massive reduction of 26%.

“We are extremely happy to work with Ecompter, and we have been able to achieve reductions in carbon footprint beyond expectations. We can without any doubt recommend Ecompter.”

Mr. Eef Izeboud, General manager
