Four Points by Sheraton Sheikh Zayed Road & Downtown Dubai joined millions around the world in turning off lights for Earth Hour to illuminate a powerful message about environmental awareness and action.
Both the properties turned off the exterior signage lighting, dimmed all non-essential interior lighting and used candlelight in the lobby and restaurants as well as the bars.
“It’s a privilege for us to support such a powerful movement with such a simple gesture” said Erik Vedsegaard, Complex General Manager. “Earth Hour also reflects a philosophy we try to practice all year-round: the small steps we take can make a big difference together,” he added.
This year marked Starwood’s sixth annual participation in Earth Hour, making it one of the largest worldwide companies to make a pronounced global statement with a voluntary hour of darkness.
Earth Hour is just one of the many ways Starwood acts in support of its 30/20 by 20 goals, which is the company’s commitment to reduce energy consumption by 30% and water consumption by 20% by the year 2020.
