Sheraton Abuja supports Earth Hour movement for the environment, goes dark for one hour
Sheraton Abuja Hotel will today go dark for one hour to shine a light on climate action in support of Earth Hour 2018. The hotel will join millions around the world in turning off its lights at 8:30 pm local time to illuminate a powerful message about environmental awareness and action.
The hotel as part of plans will organise two activities to mark the event. The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) created the annual global environmental awareness event 11 years ago to emphasize the threat of climate change.
Vice President, Sustainability and Supplier Diversity, Denise Naguib said associates will plant Moringa trees at the Hotel’s football pitch at 5pm; later on at 8:30pm, in-house guests and associates will celebrate at the Pool Bar and Restaurant with good music as lights are turned off at designated areas to conserve energy.
He said, “It’s a privilege for us to support Earth Hour because it echoes Marriott International’s global focus on the environment. 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 and social impact platform, Serve 360.”
Guided by its sustainability and social impact platform, Serve 360: Doing Good in Every Direction, Marriott is committed to making a positive and sustainable impact wherever it does business.
While integrating sustainability across its value chain and mitigating climate-related risk, the company is working to reduce environmental impacts, build and operate sustainable hotels, source responsibly, advance human rights, and create opportunities for the communities where we operate.
