Leidschendam, Netherlands (June 25, 2015) – Landal GreenParks is going further in improving sustainability. The company aims to have achieved a reduction in CO2 of 30 percent by 2020 and to have reduced its impact on the environment to zero by 2030. Sustainability also features high on the agenda of Landal guests: two out of three guests think that sustainability is important. That is considerably more than the average in the sector, which is 50 percent. Landal guests are also prepared to make a contribution to sustainability themselves.
Landal’s ambition is to provide unforgettable holidays without any negative impact on the natural environment. Major steps forward have already been taken over the past few years in the field of sustainability and corporate social responsibility. From Landal's own research, it is evident that guests find sustainability important. Important issues for guests include: saving energy and water, separating waste and encouraging sustainable behavior. Landal guests are also ready to make a contribution themselves, provided it is not at the expense of their holiday experience.
“Each of us is involved in Landal’s sustainable ambition, from employees and guests to owners, suppliers and regional business partners,” said Thomas Heerkens, CEO of Landal GreenParks. “And so we are inviting our guests under the motto, ‘Discover what green can do,’ to discover the areas, regions and natural environments surrounding our parks. I am convinced that it is specifically the unique, regional experiences that offer a powerful guest experience and maintain the attraction of recreation in the Netherlands. By the end of 2015 with 40 Green Key-certified parks, Landal will be well on course to making an important contribution to a better living environment and to further extending its position as market leader.”
