Sheraton Amsterdam Airport Hotel & Conference Center Goes Green

Sheraton Amsterdam Airport Hotel & Conference Center is part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts and strives to reach the targets set by Starwood back in 2009 in collaboration with Conservation International. The main objective is the 30-20 program in 2020. This program aims for the saving of 30% energy and 20% water in 2020 compared to 2008. And this in all 1500 Starwood hotels in the world!

Furthermore, there are ambitious goals with regard to reducing the CO2 emission per overnight stay as well as reducing the non-reusable waste and the use of sustainable ingredients in our dishes.

Starwood has also created Sustainable Meeting Practices. Through these practices we aim to assist Meeting Organizers to organize environmentally conscious meetings. More information about this program can be found here.

We have successfully obtained the Golden Green Key Certificate, as a result of environmental responsibility within the Sheraton Amsterdam Airport Hotel. The Green Key is an international standard for businesses in the tourism and leisure industry that achieve measurable performances in Corporate Social Responsibility.

 

Several initiatives within the Sheraton Amsterdam Airport Hotel & Conference that have been implemented include:

 

Good Housekeeping

We reward guest who choose not to have their room cleaned entirely each day. They may choose between discounts on food and beverage or SPG points - that can also be donated to UNICEF.

Guest's laundry is delivered to their rooms in wicker baskets, saving a lot of plastic each day.

 

Decrease of internal paper use

The paper that is used at the Sheraton Amsterdam Airport Hotel & Conference Centre is printed two-sided.

All faxes that come in are not directly printed, but stored on the computer.

Brochures and leaflets are printed on paper with an international eco-label.
