The fully energy-neutral Hotel Boat and Co received a BREEAM score of 73% in an independent assessment, recognising it as a very sustainable hotel.

Bouwinvest's real estate investment strategy focuses on sustainably certified real estate that reduces environmental impact. Its aim is to have at least 75% of its capital invested in real estate with an above-average sustainability certificate by 2021.
