On March 25, more than 350 Carlson Rezidor Hotels from Fiji to Brussels to Chicago participated in the annual worldwide Earth Hour, a worldwide movement encouraging individuals, communities, households and businesses across the globe to turn off non-essential lights for an hour to raise awareness of the need to act on climate change.
The Radisson Blu, Radisson, Park Inn by Radisson, Country Inns & Suites and Park Plaza hotels engaged in Earth Hour – an environmental initiative supported by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) – as an opportunity to engage with guests, employees and business partners to encourage energy savings by organizing several engaging activities in the dark, for example, romantic candlelight dinners featuring special Earth Hour cocktails and Earth Hour menus.
“Our hotel teams are eager to participate in Earth Hour by switching off non-essential lights and creating memorable moments for our guests, in an original, fun and responsible manner. Earth Hour complements our Think Planet strategy and ambition to be the driving force of a more sustainable hospitality industry,” said Inge Huijbrechts, Vice President, Responsible Business for Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group.
