Ethical Commitment:

We are Africa’s greenest hotel and the only hotel in the world to be double LEED platinum certified by the USGBC (construction and operation/maintenance). We are certified by Fair Trade Tourism and have a Corporate Social responsibility programme. As an ethical and green hotel, we aim to seize each and every opportunity possible to do­ what we can to help members of the local community. This has resulted in a significant number of projects whereby the hotel has donated specific items of need, o­ffered the hotel as a venue for functions and sponsored meals and accommodation or donated vouchers as prizes for fundraising purposes. To this end Hotel Verde has sponsored over R200 000 in donations.  In addition, our hotel offers eco-tours to educate students and learners on what we do and how they too can live more sustainable lives.

We are the first hotel in the world to be double LEED platinum certified by the United States Green Building Council, for both construction and operations/maintenance. In addition, we have a 6 Star Certification from Green Star SA for Existing Building Performance.  We have a staff programme called ‘Avanti’. Avanti, which means “moving forward” in Italian, was created in May 2014 with the aim to empower, educate and train employees through awareness and event participation, including departmental competitions and team building. More recently we developed a staff wellness programme called ‘Vertality’ that encourages employees to adopt healthy lifestyle choices and practices. Hotel Verde also offers and employee growth programme that allows staff to do shadow shifts in other department to expand their skills and pursue their interests. The hotel also organizes wellness days, including TB and HIV testing, eye testing and health screenings.
