General Manager Anita Bos about Green Globe:
Green Engage: Sustainable Luxury
It's good to know while you enjoy the height of luxury, we're committed to sustainability.
At InterContinental Hotels & Resorts we have implemented an innovative online system – Green Engage® - which allows us to reduce our carbon footprint and impact on the environment: from selecting suitable building sites to energy efficient lighting. In practical terms, our initiatives have helped our hotels and resorts reduce their energy consumption by up to 25%.
Green Globe Certified

Guests can help us protect the environment. Every day hotels around the world wash towels, very often unnecessarily. This not only wastes a considerable amount of water, but also pollutes our rivers and seas with detergents. Please help us to preserve our beautiful planet. If guests wish to cooperate, we kindly ask them to hang up any towels that they wish to re-use.
InterContinental Amstel Amsterdam has taken the following steps to make sure the energy and rational practices are done.
- Making use of LED lighting.
- 90% of kitchen equipment is based upon induction.
- Double glass.
- Extension cords line that shuts down the power automatically after a certain amount of time.

InterContinental Amstel Amsterdam is proud to share that the hotel is also having a bee hive and is contributing in sustaining the bees of Amsterdam.
