We believe that hospitality goes hand in hand with an environmentally friendly business.
Green key tip 1: The new motion fast chargers
Drivers of electric cars love to see fast charging points along busy highways or other locations where you might enjoy a short break while on the road. Think of places where you can drink a cup of coffee, check your mail or work undisturbed. Hotel Heerlen, therefore, offers the latest charging techniques for your electric car.More information
Green Key tip 2: FSC certified paper
All of our documents used in the hotel, including brochures and magazines, are made from FSC certified paper. This means that the paper comes from well-managed forests
Green key tip 3: Solar panels
There are no less than 312 solar panels on the roof of our brand-new main building.
Green key tip 4: LED lights
The current LED light emits about 50% of its energy in light. With a CFL or fluorescent lamp this is about 35% and with a light bulb 10%. The remainder is delivered in heat to the environment. With LED lighting we also save considerably on the required cooling energy in the summer months.
Green key tip 5: Streamlined transport
Our trucks are all equipped with aerodynamic spoilers, a serious investment which makes us save a lot of fuel.
Green Key tip 6: Swill waste
Swill is an English term that stands for non-consumed portions of meals. Our swill waste is pumped under pressure into an underground storage tank via a so-called dumping table.
