By spending an hour in the dark on Saturday 29 March, 2014, Villa, Rihab and Rimal Rotana reconfirmed their commitment to their eco-friendly credentials and joined millions around the world in sending a powerful message about a brighter future for our planet.
The 3 hotels turned off its lights in adherence with Earth Hour, the global environmental awareness event created by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), from 8:30 pm on Saturday, 29 March. To underscore hotels’ dedication to environmental sustainability, the 3 properties turned off non-essential and activated a range of energy-saving measures during Earth Hour.
Kinan AL Ghraoui, General Manager Villa, Rihab and Rimal Rotana, said, “We believe that by taking little steps like turning off lights will have a huge positive result. Earth Hour also reflects a philosophy we try to practice year-round: The small steps each of us takes can make a big difference together.”
Some of the world’s most famous man-made marvels and natural wonders, including Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, China’s Forbidden City, Eiffel Tower, Table Mountain, Great Pyramids of Egypt, Buckingham Palace, Brazil’s Christ the Redeemer statue, Niagara and Victoria Falls, Empire State Building, Sydney Opera House and many more global icons stood in darkness as a powerful symbol of landmark environmental action.
