The Peech is a Fair Trade in Tourism certified hotel. This acknowledges establishments that adhere to specific criteria including fair wages and working conditions, fair distribution of benefits, ethical business practice, and respect for human rights, culture and the environment. The Peech is proud to have been awarded the certification in 2010 and again in 2011. According to Lolla Meyer, FTTSA Marketing Manager, "The Peech Hotel mixes together sustainability, creativity and city living to give guests a contemporary and environmentally friendly experience that ultimately benefits staff, local businesses and the local community."
We are also a proud signatory to The Tourism Child Protection Code of Conduct. This a global initiative that provides increased protection to children from sexual exploitation in travel and tourism. The Peech was one of the founder signatories when the code was brought to South Africa. We aim to put something back into the community by supporting Little Eden. Based about 20 minutes from the hotel, Little Eden cares for persons with intellectual disability, mostly children. Having been involved since 2008 the hotel knows the work Little Eden does is invaluable and that 100% of the support we give is put to the benefit of the children. Hotel guests are invited to add R5 per night stayed to their bill to contribute towards the charity. The hotel matches all donations given on a Rand for Rand basis. The hotel also donates relevant items (linen, crockery etc) to the charity and allows the organisation to award a staff member a stay at the hotel every month as an incentive for top performance.
