March 24, 2018 Responsible Tourism No Comments Email Email

Marriott International Asia Pacific will go dark for one hour on March 24 to shine a light on climate action in support ofEarth Hour 2018. Hotels across Asia Pacific will join millions around the world in turning off its lights at 8:30 p.m. local time to illuminate a powerful message about environmental awareness and action. The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) created the annual global environmental awareness event 11 years ago to emphasize the threat of climate change.

Marriott International Asia Pacific will participate with activities such as: turning off exterior signage lighting; dimming or turning off non-essential interior lighting; using candlelight in appropriate public areas such as restaurants and bars; and using in-room voicemail messages and in-room television messages to inform guests about Earth Hour observances. Marriott International Asia Pacific will also participate in Marriott International’s drive to raise funds for WWF.

“It’s a privilege for us to support Earth Hour because it echoes Marriott International’s global focus on the environment” said Denise Naguib, Vice President of Sustainability and Supplier Diversity. “Today, business plays a critical role in taking on our world’s most pressing social and environmental issues, including climate change. Earth Hour reflects a philosophy we aim to practice year-round through our sustainability & social impact platform,Serve 360.”
