Green care is our social responsibility
At art’otel amsterdam we care about our guests as well as about the physical environment and the social environment in which we operate. We can and will help our guests, our industry and our environment by accommodating the growth in global travelers in a sustainable way. Our employees and suppliers demonstrate care for the environment and society and we are continuously working on improvement in terms of water, waste and energy.
Because this is a collaborative effort we have developed our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy: TREE – Total Responsibility for Everyone’s Environment. We have made a commitment to reducing consumption of natural resources, waste and CO2 emissions and take care of our employees through learning and development. We ask our suppliers to subscribe to our CSR philosophy. This is not a short-term exercise for us and we will continue to inspire our guests, our team members and all those who interact with us to make our industry more sustainable.

‘You can help us to create a greener world!
Every day hotels around the world wash towels, very often unnecessarily. This not only wastes a considerable amount of water, but also pollutes our rivers and seas with detergents. Please help us to preserve our beautiful planet. If you wish to cooperate, we kindly ask you to hang up any towels that you wish to re-use. Towels placed on the floor will be washed. If you choose to re-use your linen after 3 nights you will receive a discount at the restaurant or you can donate to a good cause.

Thank you very much and we wish you an enjoyable and memorable stay.
