Corporate sociale responsibility

At Haarhuis, we find the environment very important. That's why we inventory all the lights at Haarhuis and the number of watts per light. Also the consumption of gas, water, electricity, linens and cleaning products are checked every year. The waste of the hotel is collected separately to make sure that products can be recycled. When Haarhuis purchases or replaces equipment, Haarhuis makes sure that there is one with a low energy consumption. Also the energy consumption of our refrigerators and freezers are minimized through structural maintenance. And finaly Haarhuis selects her suppliers carefully on sustainability. 

All the departments of Haarhuis offer fun and educational internships to students. In this way students can learn the company and the business and Haarhuis meets potential employees.
