DeFabrique feels that sustainability is very important, because it is the only way to engage in entrepreneuring with future generations in mind.

We contribute to a better world by way of the following:

  • Renovating industrial heritage using recycled materials
  • 334 solar panels to enable energy-neutral events
  • Offering alternatives to beverages that are high in sugar
  • Stimulating our guests to serve tap water
  • Using 100% green energy
  • Reducing no-show at events
  • Stimulating our guests to use public transport to get to our venue
  • Using LED lighting
  • Buying from local (organic) suppliers
  • Using environmentally-friendly cleaning agents and engaging in waste separation
  • Digitalising our documentation as much as possible
  • Using paper with the FSC/PEFC and ECT/TCF labels

Sustainable entrepreneurship

Repurposing the old mixed feed factory into a modern events venue was the most sustainable decision DeFabrique could have ever made.

Green Key

DeFabrique takes measures regarding environmental care and Corporate Social Responsibility. As such, DeFabrique has obtained the Green Key international label for companies in the tourism and recreation industries who are seriously and verifiably working on sustainability and Corporate Social Entrepreneurship Responsibility (CRS), caring for the environment within the company and nature in its immediate surroundings.

A bright, sunny future

As of the summer of 2017, the roof of our Harbour Warehouse has been shining brightly; 334 solar panels have been installed on this roof to generate a good 87,000 kWh in electricity each year, which is enough for us to be able to organise energy-neutral events. For peak times when these solar panels do not suffice, we rely on 100% green power. On top of that, we make sure that our employees use energy sparingly whenever they can.

Food & Drink

DeFabrique uses a lot of local, organic products and aims to do so even more extensively in the future. Our range features a great many labels such as the Dutch Milieukeur and EKO labels and the Fair Trade label. In short, our standard catering range contains a large number of products that are 100% organic. And whenever there is food left over, we donate it to the Salvation Army.


DeFabrique has developed a bar that allows guests to tap their own water and use a range of delicious homemade syrups to mix up their own lemonade, limiting the transport of bottled water to and from our location.

No show & public transport

On top of that, DeFabrique makes efforts to reduce the number of no-shows in the events industry. Lastly, we stimulate our guests and clients to use public transport to get to our venue as much as possible.
