SDGs Action - Huis Ten Bosch's SDGs Initiatives

To future children
~ Challenge to Sustainable Development ~

Another name for Huis Ten Bosch, which means ``house in the forest,'' is ``the city born from the sea.''
This land where Huis Ten Bosch is now located was once so-called wasteland. Therefore, the first project before opening was aimed at regenerating the area, restoring its natural state, and achieving "sustainable development" for the future.
Considering harmony with the surrounding nature as our top priority, we planted 400,000 trees, changed the coast to an eco-friendly stone wall, and collected wastewater generated within the park to avoid polluting canals and the sea. We have created a cycle that purifies wastewater using our advanced sewage treatment equipment and returns it to nature.
Huis Ten Bosch is the only tourist city in the world that is developed and operated by a single private company.
We want to be a "city that has been ticking for a thousand years." To this end, we will practice "sustainable development" and preserve our wonderful culture and natural environment.
Through "sustainable development," we want to gift a wonderful culture and natural environment to our children 1,000 years from now.
That is our unchanging wish at Huis Huis Ten Bosch.

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.

General information

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

Based on the idea that `` Huis Ten Bosch is one city,'' we have also established departments that serve as police and fire departments.
Our staff also regularly participates in training to ensure they remain fully prepared for safety.
If you get injured or become unwell while traveling, you will feel very sad and anxious. When a customer reports an injury or unwellness, we work closely with guests and respond warmly, quickly, and accurately.

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.

About safety and security

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.
