Social Responsibility


At De L’Europe Amsterdam, our commitment to social responsibility is deeply ingrained in our ethos. As trailblazers in sustainable hospitality, we proudly earned the Green Key distinction in 2006, becoming the first five-star hotel to do so. This achievement underscores our unwavering dedication to environmental stewardship and operating in harmony with our surroundings. While celebrating this milestone, we recognized that the journey towards true sustainability is ongoing. Constantly evolving, we innovate to reduce our ecological footprint. In 2023, De L’Europe was recognized by Leading Hotels of the World as a Sustainability Leader, a testament to our commitment in hospitality, particularly in community, culture, and environmental responsibility. To stay at the forefront of green initiatives, we’ve established an internal green team for positive change across all operations.

Recognizing the profound impact of food waste on our planet, we’ve taken significant steps to minimize it in kitchens and restaurants. Through thoughtful planning, we aim to curtail waste while ensuring a memorable dining experience. The transformation of Bord’Eau, a two Michelin-star restaurant, to Flore reflects this philosophy. At Flore, seasonality and local produce are at the core of each gastronomic creation. In 2022, nine months after opening, their innovative dishes and commitment earned two Michelin stars and the Michelin Green Star.

Discover our latest addition, ‘t Huys, where local craftsmanship and creativity genuinely thrive. This initiative allows guests to get up close with the city’s essence, providing partners a home for their artistry.

Additionally, we’ve consciously embraced eco-friendly alternatives throughout our establishment. Our sustainability journey is a collective endeavor, and we invite guests to join us in creating a brighter, more sustainable world. Together, we can make a meaningful difference for our planet and future generations.
