Observing Earth Hour

Observing Earth Hour
Le Meridien turned off its lights in observance of Earth Hour, the global environmental awareness event created by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).  The hotel's dedication to environmental sustainability implemented other energy-saving measures during Earth Hour by turning off exterior signage lighting; dimming or turning off non-essential interior lighting; using candlelight in appropriate public areas such as restaurants and bars.

Guests of the hotel and others were encouraged to support this great cause by lighting candles in the hotel’s tennis court to form the well recognized Earth Hour logo ‘60+ EARTH HOUR’ and also remember passengers on the ill fated Malaysian airline MH 370. The hotel strictly follows energy saving guidelines and saves nearly 300 KW of electricity by turning off lights for an hour after the observance of Earth Hour every year.

Earth Hour is drawing strong support from Starwood hotels around the globe. Last year, unlit hotels offered striking visual imagery that provided an apt symbol of Earth Hour and included participation of nearly 600 Starwood hotels globally. This year, in Asia Pacific alone, over 180 hotels will be participating in Earth Hour.

Earth Hour is a global grassroots movement encouraging individuals around the world to take positive actions for the environment. The highlight of Earth Hour 2014 will see the world’s most iconic landmarks go dark for one designated hour, as hundreds of millions of people join in.
