We have the Golden GreenKey
Corporate Social Responsibility Statement
In Vlugtenburg’s vision, ‘sustainability’ is an important and leading theme. The consequences that non-socially responsible business practices have for the environment (Planet) are known to Vlugtenburg. Our guests and the Vlugtenburg employees(people) have an important role in this. In addition, the economic importance of Vlugtenburg is closely linked to sustainability. The starting point in all areas is therefore preservation of the environment through sustainability.
As a holiday park on the coast, Vlugtenburg must and wants to set an example. For this reason, Vlugtenburg has a policy aimed at dealing carefully with people, the environment and the planet.
This is also reflected in the measures taken by Vlugtenburg. For example, only electrically-driven golf carts drive in the park, all taps are fitted with water-saving heads and separate waste processing is carried out. All with an eye to the future, so that future generations can continue to enjoy the coast/Vlugtenburg.
In addition, we encourage and support our employees to develop a sustainable vision, so that they, too, are conscious of energy and waste disposal. For example, we send our employees to meetings/courses on sustainability in order to broaden their knowledge.
Because Vlugtenburg is involved in sustainability, many guests are inspired and so you see; every little helps.
The Green Key is the international quality mark for companies in the tourism and recreation industry and for meeting venues that are serious and verifiable about sustainability and care for the environment and nature in their surroundings. Strict sustainability conditions apply to obtaining the Green Key.
