“Responsible enjoyment at Hotel St. Pol: where sustainability and comfort go hand in hand, under the Green Key!”

Hotel St Pol is on the verge of achieving a new milestone in its commitment to sustainability and environmental awareness. We are delighted to announce the fruitful collaboration between the Province of West Flanders, Westtoer, and Green Key, supporting our hotel in realizing sustainable tourism in Knokke-Heist and beyond. Achieving and maintaining the Green Key label marks a significant step in our journey towards a greener future in the tourism industry.


Green Key, globally recognized as the most prominent environmental label for tourism, has stringent criteria that acknowledge our efforts in sustainability and environmental protection. This year, we proudly celebrate our fifth anniversary as a Green Key holder, amidst 40 other sustainable businesses in West Flanders, including our beautiful hotel, Hotel Auberge St. Pol. This accomplishment is not just a recognition of our commitment to sustainability but also a promise to our guests and the community to continually innovate and improve.

However, our commitment to sustainability does not stop here. We believe there is still plenty of room for growth and development in sustainable tourism, catering to both vacationers and business travelers. We are determined to take a leading role in this green revolution and invite you to be part of our sustainable movement.

But what exactly does sustainable tourism mean? It goes beyond mere preservation of natural resources; it also includes respecting local cultures, supporting the local economy, and promoting social justice. As a hotel, we strive to integrate these principles into all our activities and decision-making processes.

An important aspect of our sustainability policy is energy efficiency. We have invested in green technologies and practices that reduce our energy consumption and shrink our ecological footprint. This includes the use of solar energy, LED lighting, and advanced heating and cooling systems that help us lower our energy costs and minimize our impact on the environment.

Water conservation is another crucial part of our sustainability program. We have implemented measures to reduce our water consumption through the use of water-saving devices, rainwater reuse, and awareness campaigns among our guests and staff.

Waste management is also a priority for our hotel. We have introduced recycling programs and strive to minimize our waste production by promoting the use of sustainable materials and packaging.

However, sustainability is not only about environmental protection; it is also about creating a positive social impact. We aim to provide an inclusive and diverse workplace for all our employees, where equality and respect are at the forefront. Additionally, we support local community projects and charities contributing to the well-being of people in our region.

If you want to contribute to our sustainable efforts, there are several ways to do so. As a guest, you can choose to stay with us and enjoy our green facilities and services. You can also participate in our awareness programs and express your support for our sustainability policy.

But it all begins with awareness and education. That’s why we regularly organize events, workshops, and tours to raise awareness among our guests and staff about the impact of their choices on the environment and the community.

Together, we can make a difference. Let’s collaborate for a greener future for tourism, where respect for the planet and its inhabitants is at the core of everything. Join Hotel St Pol and be part of our sustainable revolution!
