Marina Hotel Kuwait supports Earth Hour 2017

Monday, March 27, 2017

Demonstrating its commitment to protecting the environment and mitigating climate change, Marina Hotel participated for the sixth consecutive year in the important worldwide event “Earth Hour". Marina Hotel Kuwait marked Earth Hour 2017, by turning off the lights of the hotel on 25 March 2017 for an hour. By this action, the hotel joins the efforts of many organizations around the world to draw attention to the worldwide issue of global warming. The activity has a great impact and involves everyone in the hotel to switch off the lights in all guestrooms and public areas.

As a symbolic gesture to warn against global warming for 60 minutes, non-essential lighting and electrical appliances around the property were switched off in an effort to reduce their environmental impact and draw attention to environmental issues. In addition there was a spectacular display made up of candles illuminating the lobby.

Employees of each department including Sales & Marketing, Front Office, Food & Beverage, Housekeeping, Engineering, Finance, IT, Admin, Human Resources along with the General Manager, Mr. Nabil Hammoud were present, assisting with candles set-up around the hotel and creating awareness for guests to contribute to global environmental change.

“Earth Hour is one of the ways we show our commitment to energy conservation,” commented Nabil Hammoud, General Manager, Marina Hotel. “We are dedicated to actively participate and support any programme which works to preserve our planet. Observing Earth Hour is one of the activities we uphold in relation to our corporate responsibilities to help raise awareness for climate change with our employees and guests."

Participating in the Earth Hour, Marina Hotel Kuwait joins the growing list of supporting businesses that are committed to take a stand on climate change and create a cleaner, safer and more secure future.

Earth Hour is an annual international event created by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), to raise awareness towards the need and take action on climate change. With the challenges of the global economy, leaders and people remain focused on the growing threat of climate change and place a high priority on environmentally-friendly solutions as one of the ways to overcome those challenges.
