The Rijksmuseum

The Rijksmuseum offers visitors a unique and inspiring experience. This experience doesn't end at the museum's doors or the fence around the garden. A pleasant environment and a healthy city contribute to this experience.

The Rijksmuseum is among the most sustainable museums in the world. The gardens surrounding the museum play a crucial role in the city's ecology. Native plants contribute to the local flora and fauna, and adjustments are made to provide more opportunities for endangered species, including a pair of peregrine falcons that have taken up residence in our clock tower. Educational programs and school gardens in the Rijksmuseum garden enhance children's awareness of nature.

The Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences

The challenge of the Green Mile aligns seamlessly with this ambition.

Heineken

Heineken operates in more than 190 countries but maintains an inseparable connection with Amsterdam as its place of origin. The company's headquarters and the former brewery, now known as the Heineken Experience, are still located on and around the Stadhouderskade. Social responsibility and sustainability are deeply ingrained in the organization's DNA. Founder Gerard Adriaan Heineken was already closely tied to the social and economic development of the city during his time.

De Nederlandsche Bank

At the heart of society, De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) is committed to contributing to a more beautiful Amsterdam. Through the renovation of its building, DNB aims to give back to and enhance the city, its surroundings, and collaboration with partners. By connecting the Frederiksplein to DNB's inner garden, an additional green space is created, providing a new pleasant area along the Amsterdam Singelgracht, which directly contributes to a healthier, greener, and more sustainable environment.

In its pursuit of sustainable prosperity, DNB sees sustainable investments as a societal duty. The organization aims to concretely embody this commitment in its work. Initiatives like the Green Mile underscore the importance of collaboration. All involved parties, both public and private, are dedicated to making a lasting impact with the Green Mile for the long term.
