Our sustainable approach

As signatories of the Glasgow Declaration, we are always trying to find ways to lower the carbon footprint of our press activities. We aim to organise our press trip visits using sustainable transport options. Once in the Netherlands we prioritise the use of public transport, cycling and walking during our trips and choose dining options that focus on vegetarian and vegan food. Green Key hotels and other sustainable accommodation options are used. Click here for our suggestions on sustainable travel packing.

Perspective Destination Netherlands 2030

Perspective 2030 is about destination the Netherlands. It is about the transformative power of tourism and the contribution of this industry to the social challenges of the Netherlands. Through our work with the media, we can deliver the aims of the Perspective 2030 document including:

  • Ensuring that the benefits and burdens of tourism are in balance;
  • That we focus on all of the Netherlands: putting more cities and regions on the map as attractive destinations;
  • We showcase how easily accessible cities and regions are;
  • Sustainability is a must: a living environment with less waste and pollution;
  • A hospitable industry: the Netherlands as a welcoming destination assisted by and through tourism.
