Social Responsibility
  • Giving Back

    L’ermitage in Franschhoek supports the social responsibility charter of the greater Fransche Hoek Estate, which has as its principle goal the creation of entrepreneurial and training opportunities for previously disadvantaged communities in the area.

    The Franschhoek Empowerment and Conservation (FREMCO) Trust is the vehicle through which the previously disadvantaged of Franschhoek can participate in the mainstream of the local economy, and which disburses levy funds on behalf of the Stellenbosch Municipality.

    The beneficiaries of the Trust are all those who were legally resident in the municipal area of Franschhoek on 30 November 2000, who are breadwinners of a family and who either are members of FRALCRA (i.e., a land claimant), and/or who belong to the previously disadvantaged communities of Franschhoek.

    The development of L’ermitage was approved under very specific and strict environmental conditions, supporting our commitment to environmental conservation and sustainability.

    Natural Environment

    Just some of the initiatives the hotel has undertaken in the run-up to construction have been the redesign of watercourses, the removal of alien black wattles, and a massive “search and rescue” operation to ensure that no plant species were harmed during construction.

    A highlight was the unexpected discovery of the rare and endangered serruria gracilis protea on the mountain slopes, resulting in a rethink of the layout of a planned vineyard on the estate.

    The Department of Environmental Affairs and Development Planning follows urban developments closely, and all construction work on site must be carried out according to an approved environmental management plan.

    The estate is managed according to an environmental management system known as ISO 14001, an internationally approved standard. In line with this standard, L’ermitage will be audited by an independent ISO 14001 certified auditor body such as the SABS.
