The Majestic Arjaan by Rotana joined the rest of the world by participating in Earth Hour 2014 from 8:30 – 9:30 pm on March 29th, 2014.
Taking part in the noble campaign like the millions of people and establishments internationally who turned off their lights, the hotel management established its sincere initiative for energy conservation by turning off its non-essential external lights as well as actively encouraged its guests to turn off the lights in their respective guestrooms for one hour.
Earth Hour, a global climate change awareness campaign organized by World Wide Fund for Nature/ World Wildlife Fund (WWF), was started in Australia in 2007. WWF celebrates the event every last Saturday of March each year with the aim of raising international awareness towards the urgent need to take action on climate change and energy conservation.
Earth Hour, an event that started in 2007 with 2.2 million homes and businesses and reached 50 million people in 2008 had grown into a global sustainability movement and achieved its goal in 2009 by including 1 billion people among 4,100 cities in 87 countries on 7 continents.
Mr. Raiz Saban, General Manager of Majestic Arjaan by Rotana commented, “Our goal in participating in Earth Hour goes beyond being part of the statistics which turned off lights. More importantly, it was to prove that social responsibility, especially in terms of actively doing our part in conserving energy and saving the Earth, has always been a priority of the hotel’s management. It has been our pleasure to participate in this noble cause and we look forward to participating again next year”.
