Corporate Social Responsibility
The Manhattan Hotel Rotterdam recertified itself for the Golden GreenKey award in 2013, the ultimate recognition for our environmentally friendly hotel management.
This is the highest available award by the international Green Key Organization. All organizations rewarded by Green Key apply to the highest requirements related to environmental management and are checked based upon technical criteria related to maintenance and guest communications. Our hotel has energy saving lighting in guestrooms and public areas.
The Manhattan Hotel Rotterdam encourages you to help us saving energy while staying with us. You may choose to extend the use of the bedding and towels another day or refresh every day. Please notify house keeping via the card in your room.

Sustainable Purchase Policy
The Manhattan Hotel Rotterdam aims for a sustainable purchase policy based upon innovation and sustainability. The purchase of products which are eco-qualified, fair trade, recyclable, bio-certified, energy saving or region-related align with our overall objective to reach a healthier and better environment. We try to reduce waste by using compostable products and separate garbage. We prefer choosing suppliers who deliver sustainable products and have an environmental policy.
The Manhattan Hotel Rotterdam purchase guidelines favour the purchase of sustainable products and services without compromising the hotel performance. When making purchases the long term savings prevail over short term savings. We recognize the possibility to reduce waste by using reusable products which are compostable and recyclable. By purchasing biological products we contribute to a world free of pesticides, by buying regional products we reduce CO2 emission caused by transportation. In support of this policy the hotel management will require suppliers to indicate fair trade or eco-certified alternatives when available.
