Corporate Social Responsibility with a focus on the FoodValley region

Corporate Social Responsibility with a focus on our region: the FoodValley


Corporate Social Responsibility is a high priority for Van der Valk Hotel Veenendaal. For us it is important that we care for nature, the environment, sustainability and that we help create commitment to the region.


We won GOLD! Our hotel has obtained Golden Green Key certification. This prestigious eco-label for sustainable companies in the hotel and leisure sector has three levels: gold, silver and bronze.
The more environmental measures a company has taken, the higher environmentally-friendly level, and all this has been done without making any concessions to customer comfort. Our hotel has been awarded a gold certificate, something we’re very proud of!


Collaborations We compile our menus using ingredients from sustainable suppliers and partners in the region. Working with these regional suppliers also enables us to reduce the number of kilometres driven and emissions involved in delivering these goods. One of our suppliers, Ecofields, delivers organic and sustainable meat, produced responsibly and with respect for the environment and nature.
Comfort for guests We make our beds using sustainable linen. Environmentally-friendly products are also a high priority for our laundry Edam. The linen is GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified.


There is a huge rise in electric vehicle use these days. We want to offer our guests the opportunity to travel to our hotel in such vehicles which is why we have installed four charging points in our
multi-storey car park. We also have special bicycle chargers for charging electric bikes.
