Joining millions across the globe on 19th March 2016, irrespective of race, religion, generation and geography, Radisson Blu Dhaka Water Garden demonstrated its commitment to protecting the planet (the one thing that connects us all) by switching to energy preservation mode from 8.30 pm to 9.30 pm.
An hour in darkness was observed by switching off all building lights, non-essential equipments and machineries like desk computers, pool pumps, boilers, chillers, fans, and reduced AC temperature. The atrium lobby lights were dimmed with the only wafts of light coming from candles. Guests were encouraged to partake by switching off their room lights, dining in candle lit ambience and enjoying sheer nature by refraining to use any form of energy for 60 minutes.
Earth Hour, the world’s largest and most inspiring environmental grassroots movement, sponsored by WWF (World Wildlife Foundation), instigates all to get involved by doing something as simple as switching lights off. The world’s iconic landmarks go dark for one designated hour to support the stimulating cause.
As a citizen of this beautiful planet, Radisson Blu Dhaka Water Garden understands its responsibility to waste less, reduce its carbon footprint and use the earth’s limited resources sensibly to save them from getting exhausted. Let’s all seek for more ways to operate efficiently not just on a property level but as a whole, fulfilling our obligations as the guardians of this galaxy!
