Our Naturall Plan
It’s in our nature. Sustainability is the basis for everything we do at Center Parcs. And it’s also the name of the direction we’re following: ‘Our Naturall Plan’. It means being careful with all plant- and animal life, leaving a beautiful living environment for the next generation, and paying attention to the people around us. We do it through numerous initiatives and cooperation.

Nature deserves a break
Taking care of plant- and animal life.
Our aim is to expand the natural heritage around us. By looking after nature, just like we spoil our guests. It’s simply in our nature.
Everyone deserves a break
Good for the people around us.
Center Parcs is part of society: together we strive for a bright future. We do this through a comprehensive approach called Our Naturall Plan. For instance by being a good employer. But also by supporting worthy causes and welfare organisations. Our mission is to be good for the people around us. That way, we take care of each other. It’s in our nature.

Fruit with spots
The production of our food depends on the input of a lot of raw materials and energy. We all believe that throwing out food is a shame, yet we are all partisan to this: 50 kilogrammes per person per year! There's no reason to throw out blemished fruit and vegetables. You can put them in a smoothie or a shake, ps: we do this at our restaurants too.
