Despite the current world health crisis Two Seasons Hotel continued to implement the Earth Hour Day. The 2020 edition took place on Saturday, March 28th at 20:30hr local time. Created by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Earth Hour is the largest movement for the planet in human history, spanning 7,000 cities, 152 countries, with a digital reach of 200 million.
Two Seasons Hotel & Apartments Dubai will join millions around the world in turning off lights for Earth Hour 2020 to illuminate a powerful message about environmental awareness.
This annual lights-off environmental event is organized by Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) and Dubai Supreme Council of Energy to raise awareness of climate changes.
From 8:30 p.m., the main lighting and the AC in the public areas were turned off and the hotel remained on minimal lighting for one hour. Hotel guests were encouraged to participate by switching off the lighting and any power or devices in their guestrooms and apartments. The Hotel outlets stopped also all deliveries during the same timing to support the reduction of CO2 emissions on earth.
Participating by implementing a range of energy-saving measures during Earth Hour, Two Seasons Hotel turned off their signage’s on the back offices, minimized the corridor lights, and minimized the lobby and restaurant lights. They have also involved their employees by turning off the lights at the staff accommodation and encouraged their in-house guests to participate by turning off the lights in their room.
“It’s a privilege for us to support such a powerful movement with such simple gestures, Earth Hour also reflects a philosophy we try to practice year-round: The small steps each of us takes can make a big difference together,” said Freddy Farid, Managing Director of Two Seasons Management Company FZ LLC.
This step is part of the hotels’ long term commitment – Green Globe Program which focuses on more sustainable hotel operation and aims to be among the leading environment friendly hotels in Dubai.
