Social Responsibility in Brussels

Thon Hotels puts a lot of focus on sustainability and a social responsibility. In order to contribute to a more sustainable society for future generations we have put in place several sustainable actions at our hotels in Brussels. Our goal is to make our hotels as eco-friendly and sustainable as possible.


Four of the Thon hotels in Brussels and Rotterdam (Thon Hotel EU, Thon Hotel Bristol Stephanie, Stanhope Hotel Brussels, Thon Hotel Rotterdam) are certified with the international Green Key eco-label, which is now present in over 50 countries. To achieve Green Key certification, the hotels actively address a number of criteria such as environmental management, information to guests and staff, minimising their consumption of energy, water and chemicals and reducing waste.  Thon Hotel EU and Stanhope Hotel Brussels by Thon Hotels are also certified by an Eco-dynamic Enterprise label.


Thon Hotels in Brussels has signed an electricity certificate agreement that guarantees that the energy supplied to all our hotels in Brussels is 100% from renewable energy sources. Having switched to 100% sustainable energy will help us to reduce our carbon footprint and to work towards even more sustainable hotel accommodation for our guests.


Thon Hotels in Brussels has three main social partners; GoodPlanet, Red Cross and Birds Bay. These partnerships are based on guests staying at the hotel for more than one night choosing to hang a green card on the door indicating that they don't require roomcleaning. This comes with EUR 5 green coin that one may use in the bar or restaurant, or donate to the association of one’s choice. The money donated allows to contribute to a green, healthy and friendly environment in local schools, one hot meal for a disadvantaged person or two weeks of feeding for a baby hedgehog or squirrel before release.


Thon Hotel EU and Thon Hotel Bristol Stephanie have, in collaboration with the Belgian Red Cross, organized annual blood donation days. Donation of blood, plasma and platelets helps to save lives.

Thon Hotels in Brussels have chosen to buy only Fairtrade certified coffee. Fairtrade values, roasting coffee beans with solar energy, using coffee as organic waste, and recycled packaging are several of the positive effects that come from this collaboration. Thanks to this cooperation, Thon Hotels in Brussels has in 2017 protected 11 208 m² of rainforest.
