One of the notable sustainability initiatives undertaken by The Dylan Amsterdam is its promotion of Swapfiets, a renowned bicycle subscription service. The hotel provides its employees a one-year subscription to Swapfiets, encouraging them to commute to work by bike, reducing carbon emissions and embracing an eco-friendlier mode of transportation.
Furthermore, The Dylan Amsterdam is dedicated to reducing single-use plastic waste, with a particular focus on water consumption. All employees receive a Dopper refillable water bottle to reduce the amount of single use cups used in the staff restaurant. Dopper is a social enterprise producing reusable bottles and water refill stations.
As part of its ongoing dedication to Dutch culture, The Dylan Amsterdam continues to celebrate the history of its of 17th century building. The Dylan was originally the first theater in Amsterdam, with the Dutch word for theatre, “Schouwburg” invented for this building. The opening play in 1638 was the Gijsbreght van Aemstel, a trojan horse story about the demise of medieval Amsterdam, which then makes way for the Dutch Golden Age. For the 6th year and first year after the pandemic, the play was performed in January 2023 for nearly local 400 Amsterdammers.
While working in a heritage building, The Dylan Amsterdam has continued to research how to adapt the traditional architecture and become carbon neutral. Energy efficient LED lighting has been rolled out, and plans are under way to convert gas heating for guest rooms and public areas to cleaner electrical heating.
“We are thrilled to have received Green Globe Certification, as it reflects our ongoing commitment to sustainability and responsible tourism,” said Mr Robbert van Rijsbergen, Director of Sales & Marketing at The Dylan Amsterdam. “By supporting Swapfiets and Dopper, and also making donations to Ocean Clean Up, we promote sustainable lifestyle choices. Furthermore, our support for local arts showcases our dedication to preserving Amsterdam’s rich cultural legacy. We believe that by combining luxury, comfort, and sustainability, we can provide an unforgettable experience for our guests while making a positive impact on the environment.”
