SDGs Action - Huis Ten Bosch's SDGs Initiatives

To future children
~ Challenge to Sustainable Development ~

Huis Ten Bosch, which means "house in the forest," is "a city born from the sea."
Huis Ten Bosch is located, was a so-called wasteland. Therefore, the first project before the opening of the business aimed at the restoration of this area, the restoration of the natural appearance that it should be, and the "sustainable development" for the future.
Considering harmony with the surrounding nature first, we planted 400,000 trees, changed the coast to an ecosystem-friendly masonry revetment, and in order not to pollute the canal and the sea, the sewage generated in the park is in-house. We have created a cycle that purifies and naturally returns with advanced sewage treatment equipment.
In addition, the bricks laid in the hall show the hydrophilicity of rainwater, and much of the electricity used for the production is covered by a unique energy system.
Huis Ten Bosch is a tourist city that is unique in the world and is developed and operated by a single private company as a business.
I want to be a "city that ticks the millennium." To that end, we will practice "sustainable development" and maintain a wonderful culture and natural environment.
With "sustainable development," we would like to give children a thousand years ahead a wonderful culture and natural environment.
That is the unchanging wish of Huis Ten Bosch.

"The most productive hotel in the world" aims to be "a hotel where you can stay comfortably at the ends of the world."

"Henna Hotel Huis Ten Bosch" is a "hotel that promises to keep changing" and a "hotel that aims to be the most productive in the world".
The "productivity" we aim for is an ideal hotel that offers the minimum number of personnel, the utmost consideration for the surrounding environment, and sufficient comfort for our customers. In order to reduce construction costs, we used Japan's first CLT method and used 100% local wood, which is a natural material. We also aim to contribute to the promotion of local forestry by popularizing this method.
We also serve fresh vegetables grown in-house ceramics at the restaurant. Delicious vegetables are produced by applying moderate stress to the crops.

Customer feedback that is indispensable for corporate growth

Huis Ten Bosch's website, questionnaires, telephone calls, opinions, requests, and compliments sent directly to employees will be promptly notified to the relevant departments and will be dealt with on the same day as possible.
In addition, at the morning assembly, we are pursuing the operation of a theme park that will satisfy our customers by sharing and disseminating "customer feedback" to all employees, including specific improvement measures.

Customer feedback during the entire morning assembly

We received opinions from guests Huis Ten Bosch Garden, such as strollers and wheelchairs being difficult to push, rattling, and tripping, and part of the stone pavement was constructed on a brick sidewalk. While protecting the natural landscape, the wheelchair or stroller guests are now able to move the park smoothly also.

Some of the stone pavement in the rose garden has been changed to bricks, improving it so that it can be enjoyed by guests.

To a city where customers and staff can spend safely and securely

From the perspective of preventing the spread of the new coronavirus, we place the highest priority on the safety and security of our customers, employees, related parties, etc., and comply with the "Guidelines for Preventing the Spread of the New Coronavirus in Amusement Parks and Theme Parks". We are also working to prevent the spread of infection, such as measuring the temperature at the time of admission, disinfecting hands, and having customers put paper napkins on their mouths during conversations during meals.
In addition, based on the idea that "Huis Ten Bosch is a city," we have also set up departments that function as police and fire departments.
Staff also participate in training on a regular basis to ensure safety.
If you get injured or feel sick while traveling, you will be "very lonely and anxious." If you are injured or feel unwell, we will be close to you and provide a warm, prompt and accurate response.

In-house instructors for ordinary lifesaving training will be trained so that 200 people can take the training every month, and all 1,200 people including part-time staff will take the lifesaving training (completed by September 2021). We are training employees who can respond even in an emergency.

There are 23 life-saving "AEDs" in the park. AEDs are always installed within 100m.

With local people

Huis Ten Bosch was created based on the history of exchange between Japan and the Netherlands for more than 400 years.
Nagasaki has developed as the only gateway to foreign trade since ancient times, and is a charming city with Nagasaki's unique culture (Japanese, Chinese, and Dutch cultures).
In the neighboring Saga prefecture, there are many famous pottery-producing areas that were brought to Europe through trade between Japan and the Netherlands during the Edo period. In order to enjoy Nagasaki, Saga, and Kyushu, which have various charms, Huis Ten Bosch will cooperate with the local people in various ways to convey the charm of Kyushu.
Kyushu is a treasure trove of food. At the "Jigemon (local) fair" where you can taste local ingredients, the "Kyushu Castle" where you can find Kyushu's specialties, and the restaurant inside the venue, we are particular about local ingredients and connect customers and producers.

There is a Nagasaki Prefecture system "Nagasaki Concierge" so that customers can spend a comfortable stay, provide satisfactory services, and convey the value and charm unique to Nagasaki Prefecture. (At Huis Ten Bosch, seven concierge-certified staff are active in the hotel. As of June 2021) We are striving to contribute to the development of the tourism industry in Nagasaki Prefecture, such as by increasing the number of repeat customers.

Professional human resources certified by the prefecture that can convey the value and charm unique to Nagasaki Prefecture.
