A green hotel with an eye to the future

Get out and enjoy all the beauty that the hotel, the Veluwe and Apeldoorn have to offer. At Van der Valk Hotel Apeldoorn - de Cantharel, we do everything to make your visit and/or stay a success. But we do more than that.

People, planet and profit are a structural part of our business objectives. As a sustainable business, Van der Valk Hotel Apeldoorn - de Cantharel is certified with the Green Key Gold certificate, a well-known international quality mark for sustainable businesses in the hotel and recreation industry. This quality mark shows that we are just that bit more conscious of nature and the environment than normal laws and regulations require. In doing so, we take our responsibility towards nature and the environment seriously. We achieve a major effect with small measures, without compromising your comfort.

Sustainability in practice

An important part of the Green Key certificate is that you, as our guest, are not inconvenienced by the sustainable actions we undertake. Nor are you expected to constantly take nature and the environment into account during your visit and/or stay. On the contrary: you will probably enjoy your visit and/or stay even more if you realise that you are unwittingly contributing to the preservation of nature and the environment.

In practice, our sustainability policy means that we cooperate a lot with local entrepreneurs. For example, our menu mainly features products from the region. We select suppliers who have a sustainability policy and have them sign a sustainability declaration to ensure a sustainable chain.

And there is more: from eco-friendly cleaning products to energy-efficient appliances, energy-generating technologies and energy-saving measures. From reducing mono-packaging to applying water-saving measures to taps, showers and toilets (without sacrificing comfort). We also try to separate our waste as much as possible and have an eye for human and social aspects inside and outside the company (by offering jobs to people with a distance to the labour market, among others). We even have a Green Team dedicated to developing new sustainability actions.
