The first hotel in the Netherlands with a BREEAM-NL certificate

The Courtyard by Marriott at Atlas ArenA Amsterdam is the first hotel in the Netherlands to be awarded a BREEAM-NL New Buildings certificate by the Dutch Green Building Council (DGBC).

BREEAM-NL is well-known in the market as a sustainability quality mark for large office buildings and districts, but never before has the design of a hotel been assessed according to BREEAM-NL. The Courtyard by Marriott hotel at Atlas ArenA Amsterdam achieved the sustainability score even though there was not yet a specific quality mark for hotels, and so it was not possible to award a credit score for certain elements.
