Sustainability: Green Key Certification

Amsterdam Canal Hotel is proactively dedicated to helping make a difference in environmental and sustainable responsibility. We aim to have high environmental standards by going above and beyond what is compulsory by the legal environmental requirements.

Green Key is one of the world’s largest eco-labels within the tourism industry. By being Green Key certified, we are proving to be seriously working on sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) with care for the working environment and the nature around us.

We will be implementing new environmentally friendly products and sustainable methods in Green Key Certification. Our aim is to create social changes not only for our staff members, but also that of the guests and suppliers, thereby creating more sustainable awareness. 

Products & Processes

We have introduced new sustainable processes and products such as Earth Water, Fair Trade Newby Tea and other environmentally friendly goods; we also recycle our coffee capsules and are solely using glass-packaged drinks that can be reused and recycled. Next to this, we are working with mostly locally grown and sourced organic products for. We are also aiming to reduce our impact on the environment with our processes and methods, by conserving water and electricity. We solely make use of LED lights, and adapted to an automated light system in which the lights turn off when the guests takes their key and leave the room.

Charity Organizations

Stichting Opkikker

As part of being Green Key (Gold) certified, we will also be working together with Stichting Opkikker, a charity organization that arranges unforgettable and memorable days out for families with children who are not well. By recycling all of our old ink cartridges and batteries, and donating these to Stichting Opkikker, we will be enabling these children and their families to experience and enjoy a cherished day together.


Our tea brand, Newby, is more than just tea. It is a company that is largely owned by the

N Sethia Foundation, a charity organization that focuses on projects mainly in areas such as education, medication and social welfare. A large portion of Newby profits go to these development projects all around the world, including several in India which is where the tea originates.
