La HulpeBrussels

  • Carbon report

    Since its opening, Dolce La Hulpe Brussels has implemented a series of initiatives to limit its impact on the environment.  The majority of these are listed below alongside initiatives with a social impact.

    In 2023, we felt it was essential to be able to measure our carbon footprint, understand the elements composing it and be able to analyse the data by category.

    In addition, we wanted to be supported by experts in sustainability to guide us in the most relevant actions to implement in relation to the uniqueness of our hotel.
