Since 2012, Hotel Mitland has been in possession of a Golden Green Key. This certificate is an international quality mark for companies that take sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) seriously and are also open to be checked on this. Hotel Mitland can justly be called one of the greenest hotels in Utrecht, not only due to its location in a beautiful park but mainly because of the many measures taken to reduce its environmental impact. A major renovation in 2006 transformed it into a sustainable eco-hotel.
For example, the roofs are covered with sedum, providing natural insulation and reducing energy consumption. A special pit for organic waste has been installed in the kitchen (to produce biogas), and all standard lighting has been replaced by sustainable LED lights, which consume less energy and have a longer lifespan.
The most recent developments include the installation of 280 solar panels, four charging stations for eight electric cars, the switch to toilet paper from The Good Roll and coffee from de Koffiejongens.
In addition to these initiatives, hotel guests can also contribute to a better environment by reusing towels more often or turning off the heating when leaving their room. When you leave your hotel room, the (LED) lighting will automatically turn off with your room key.
