Geneva, March 07, 2018 – The Ritz-Carlton Hotel de la Paix, Geneva will go dark for one hour on March 24 to shine a light on climate action in support of Earth Hour 2018. The hotel will join millions around the world in turning off its lights at 8:30 p.m. local time to illuminate a powerful message about environmental awareness and action. The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) created the annual global environmental awareness event 11 years ago to emphasize the threat of climate change.
The Ritz-Carlton Hotel de la Paix, Geneva will participate by turning off exterior signage lighting, non-essential interior lighting, using candlelight in appropriate public areas such as restaurants and bars during an hour. The RitzCarlton Hotel de la Paix, Geneva will also participate in Marriott International’s drive to raise funds for WWF and propose candle-lit dinner emphasizing dishes made from organic and local produce at the Living Room Bar & Kitchen and the Fiskebar, as well as an Earth Hour themed cocktail at the Bar.
“It’s a privilege for us to support Earth Hour because it echoes Marriott International’s global focus on the environment” said Denise Naguib, Vice President of Sustainability and Supplier Diversity. “Today, business plays a critical role in taking on our world’s most pressing social and environmental issues, including climate change. Earth Hour reflects a philosophy we aim to practice year-round through our sustainability & social impact platform, Serve 360.”
