#Connect2earth With Accor For Earth Hour 2019

March 21, 2019 Responsible Tourism No Comments Email Email

Join Accor hotels across Singapore as they turn off all non-essential lights from 8.30pm to 9.30pm on 30 March 2019 to make a stand on energy conservation.  In line with Accor’s Planet 21 programme, where social and environmental responsibility is incorporated into the company’s DNA, Accor strives to drive positive change towards responsible hospitality and sustainable development.

 1.     Sofitel Singapore City Centre

Apart from switching off all non-essential electric lights from 8.30pm to 9.30pm, Sofitel Singapore City Centre raises their Earth Hour commitment up a notch by bringing the community together for a yoga session at The Lawn.  In collaboration with Tanjong Pagar Centre and Virgin Active, Sofitel Singapore City Centre will welcome members of the public as well as hotel guests and hotel ambassadors for a relaxing night to commemorate this special hour on a mindful note.

2.     Novotel & Mercure on Stevens Singapore

From 8.30pm to 9.30pm on 30 March 2019, both properties will be switching off the lights for external signage while reception and restaurant lightings will be dimmed with LED candles in restaurants.  Digital signage will also be placed around the hotel with WWF Earth Hour Artworks to encourage guests to remove their key card from the guestroom switch.

3.     Novotel Singapore Clarke Quay

Novotel Singapore Clarke Quay will be shutting down all hotel signage, closing the gymnasium for the hour, reducing swimming pool lighting by fifty per cent, grounding two lifts, dimming lights at the Square Restaurant, Le Bar Rouge and lobby by twenty per cent, operating minimum lighting for the driveway and switching off all office lighting, computers and air-conditioning.

4.     Ibis Singapore on Bencoolen

In celebration of Earth Hour, ibis Singapore on Bencoolen is planning a surprise activity for the guests at 8.30pm.  The hotel will be planning a fun initiative without excessively wasting precious resources.  All non-essential electric lights in the restaurant and lobby will be switched off for an hour from 8.30pm to 9.30pm.  Lobby and restaurant will “glow” in the dark. TASTE restaurant will be offering fifty per cent off all food items and selected beers at only $6++ during the hour.

5.     Ibis Styles Singapore on MacPherson

In commemoration of Earth Hour 2019, all lights will be switched off at 8.30pm, excluding emergency lights.  A poolside gathering has been organised for guests to relax and mingle while lights are switched off during that period.  Live entertainment by the in-house Guest Relations Executive Acoustic Singer will be provided and all snacks and drinks are priced at fifty per cent discount from 8pm to 9.30pm.  The property will also invite residents from the neighbourhood to switch off their lights in support of Earth Hour and join the poolside party with hotel residents.
