Consideration for people and animals

Corporate responsibility

One of the most important characteristics of RCN is that all of our parks are in unique locations in the countryside. A number of our holiday parks are even in conservation areas, like those in the Netherlands on the Utrechtse Heuvelrug, in the Drents-Friese Wold and Dwingelderveld in Drenthe. We want to be able to keep offering you the ultimate experience of nature, so we have to treat our surroundings with respect. We respect the countryside on and around our parks and maintain the land they are on with a great deal of care.

Working towards a sustainable world

Sustainability and RCN

In order to be able to pass on the world in a good condition to future generations, it is important to treat it wisely. At RCN, we’re continually thinking about how we can work as sustainably as possible. 

 

When you go to one our restaurants and snack bars, for example, you’ll see that we’re even endeavouring to strike a balance between tasty, healthy and sustainable. You’ll find regional products on the menu and vegetarian and gluten-free meals.

 

Saving energy

We want to pay more attention to the circular economy in the future, because reserves of fossil fuels are limited. This also applies to many other resources which we make use of in the holiday parks. We’re therefore increasingly looking for more opportunities to save energy and, ultimately, to produce that energy ourselves.

Creating and reusing raw materials

Raw materials are becoming more scarce, and as a consequence, more expensive, which is why RCN works as much as possible with recyclable materials. We want to investigate how our rubbish can be a raw material, perhaps for another product or as a part of the food chain.

 

Collaboration

We can’t afford to keep wasting energy and materials and causing pollution. In order to change this, we are going to look at ourselves critically and work well together. It is only then that our children and future generations will be able to enjoy the beautiful places in the world.

 

We also appreciate it if our guests help us think about these things as well. Have you noticed how we can improve our nature-friendly way of working during your holiday? Do you have a tip that we can use straight away? Let us know at duurzaam@rcn.nl.

 

 

Solar panels

Solar panels

We already have them at some parks and they’re on order for the others: solar panels! RCN is currently investing in large projects with regard to solar panels, so that they can make a significant contribution to the parks need for energy. You don’t have to worry about your holiday view though, we’ll be keeping them out of sight as much as possible.

Water supply points

Water supply points

Draw your own ice-cold water, sparkling or non-sparkling: that’s possible at a number of our French camping sites and it is sustainable as well as refreshing. The water from the specially installed water supply points is chilled and filtered and also saves more than 18,000 plastic bottles per holiday season. Wow!

Green Key Gold

Green Key Gold

RCN is going for gold! And that’s just what we were awarded last year. All Dutch parks achieved the Green Key Gold certificate last year, and that’s something we’re really proud about...

Electric gold cars

Electric gold cars

Our staff drive around in these golf cars every day. Do you know that almost all of our Green Technology vehicles are electric and that we are aiming to make that 100% for all our vehicles? Electrically-powered transport is less damaging for the environment (no CO2 and particulate emissions) than transport powered by conventional fuels like petrol and diesel.

 

Car and bicycle charging points

Car and bicycle charging points

There are electricity charging points for cars and bicycles at all our parks.  RCN is encouraging the use of electric bicycles and/or cars by providing these charging points, so that the environmental impact of our guests is lower.

Wash and toilet facility buildings

Wash and toilet facility buildings

Entirely gas free! The wash and toilet facility building at RCN de Jagerstee is an independently powered, energy-neutral building with solar panels, sun collectors and two heat pumps. Even the heat from your relaxing shower is reused. A good start for the sanitary building of the future and many more similar projects in the future.

Wild flowerbeds

Wild flowerbeds

You will find more than 10,000 m2 of wild flower beds across all our Dutch RCN parks. They attract bees and other insects, which not only provide honey, but also ensure that the plants and trees are pollinated. We’re not doing this just because we think that the environment and bio-diversity is important, but because the bee is being threatened with extinction.

Insect hotel

Insect hotel

RCN is actively committed to ensuring that there is a diversity of flora and fauna.  We not only provide bird nesting opportunities, but bee hives and insect hotels, creating and developing the experience of nature. Not only added value for flora and fauna, but for our guests.
