Sustainable meetings & dining at the Buitensoos

At the Nieuwe Buitensociëteit you can also choose to have climate-neutral meetings. How it works? They have calculated the CO2 emissions for each (meeting) arrangement in collaboration with Groenbalans. For a small contribution you can voluntarily offset the emissions of your meeting by investing in the Verra CO2 compensation project 'Run of the River' Karanata in India.

In the restaurant you can enjoy an extensive lunch buffet. A large part of the products are regional products from the Zwolle urban farmlands. A cooperative of organic farmers on the outskirts of Zwolle. De Nieuwe Buitensociëteit serves largely vegetarian lunch options and of course they are happy to take allergies into account.

Leonieke Hurts on

Central location, fast and well organised

“We needed a room at short notice to receive 40 colleagues from different regions in the Netherlands for a good breakfast and a presentation. This was arranged this way at the Nieuwe Buitensociëteit. I like that the location is central, opposite the station. To be repeated."
