Earth Hour, an annual global event organised by WWF (World Wildlife Fund) since 2007 is held on
the last Saturday of March from 8.30pm to 9.30pm.

The event aims to encourage households and
businesses to turn off all non-essential lights for one hour to celebrate their commitment and also to
raise awareness of the need to protect the planet.

The five Marriott hotels in Hong Kong: JW Marriott Hotel Hong Kong, Renaissance Harbour View
Hotel Hong Kong, Hong Kong SkyCity Marriott Hotel, Courtyard by Marriott Hong Kong and
Courtyard by Marriott Hong Kong Sha Tin will once again jointly participate in the Earth Hour on

1. Turn off all non-essential lighting at the back of the house area, offices as well as hotel facade
2. Dim all non-essential lights in selective restaurants

8. Recommend event guests to take up special sustainable menus and reduce lighting for 1 hour*
