Barentszen is committed to contributing to a sustainable future. As far as it is within our power, we try to reduce our impact.
We increasingly work with purchasers, product managers, event venues, and F&B partners who take responsibility and contribute to improving the environment and society. Congress Creation has a comprehensive list of suppliers in the Netherlands who operate sustainably. For example, the list includes organizations that reuse materials or rainwater and use solar energy or sustainable district heating. Our goal is to work with 50% sustainable suppliers in the Netherlands within five years.
We encourage all concretely defined and relevant initiatives related to sustainable tourism and are happy to participate in such initiatives whenever possible. For example, Holland Destination Management continuously searches for partners that contribute specifically to the (one or more) Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.
CO-CREATION WITH CLIENTS
We work in co-creation with our clients integrating their desired sustainable objectives into the co-developed event, tour, or congress concept.
Where and when possible, we select our suppliers and local agents on, among others, demonstrable performance in the field of sustainability. For example, GI Travel familiarizes its local agents with their policy on sustainable tourism and, where possible, provides support to those same partners to operate more sustainably.
Barentszen is an alliance of eight brands that individually have a track record in organizing travel, incentives, conferences, events, and programs. We know each other well and appreciate who excels in what. We work individually or join forces to create the ultimate experience for your needs.
