Underscoring Marina Hotel’s dedication to environmental sustainability, the hotel proudly participated once again in the important worldwide event “Earth Hour”.
Marina Hotel Kuwait marked Earth Hour 2014, by turning off the lights of the hotel on 29 March 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.
The 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 all present, assisting with candles set-up all over the hotel and creating awareness for the guests to contribute to global environmental change.
Mr. Nabil Hammoud – General Manager of Marina Hotel said: “We are committed to energy conservation and are encouraging our guests to join us as we turn off our lights in support of this global effort. We are pleased that most of our staff look forward to the event year after year. Earth Hour is important because we are contributing towards a cause by turning off our electronics and non-essential appliances around the property.”
“We are and will always be in support for any such global initiatives, and willing to stand up, get involved in working towards a sustainable future. Through Earth Hour, it is possible to witness how our individual actions add up and really make a difference to the environment. Earth Hour is not just about one day in the year and Marina Hotel has committed to partnering in long term actions and initiatives to promote environmental awareness on a continuing permanent basis,” further concluded Mr. Hammoud.
Participating in the Earth Hour is an annual initiative where 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. 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.
The 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. And even with the challenges of the global economy, leaders and people worldwide 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.
