Outstanding contributions

The Mövenpick Hotel is located at the waterfront of Lake Provinciehuis just outside the historical city centre of den Bosch. The 4-star hotel was recently renovated and provides a base for business travellers and leisure guests.  The hotel is certified by Green Globe and follows systems for energy, water and waste management.  Guests are encouraged to hire bikes to explore the many cycling routes in the area.

The Mövenpick ‘S-Hertogenbosch is involved with various social sustainability initiatives with its employees and wider community. Training is provided for local communities to develop a qualified local labour force. Disadvantaged young people are given the chance to explore different professions within the hotel, such as working in the kitchen, as a waiter and in reception. Secondary school pupils and students are welcomed to do hospitality work experience.  Through the Kilo of Kindness campaign, Mövenpick Hotels provides clothes and toys to underprivileged children and support to the Voedselbank (foodbank) in ‘S-Hertogenbosch.  The hotel supports WWF and the Natuurmonumenten programme in the management of nature reserves and wildlife. Through the Litre for a Litre project, water saved by the hotel is measured and an equal amount is donated to people in developing countries, amounting to 90m litres in the last five years.
