KOH SAMUI, THAILAND – March 28, 2018 – The Ritz-Carlton, Koh Samui will go dark for one hour on March 30 to shine a light on climate action in support of Earth Hour 2019. The resort will join millions around the world in turning off its lights at 8.30 pm local time to illuminate a powerful message about environmental awareness and action. The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) created the annual global environmental awareness event 12 years ago to emphasize the threat of climate change.
The Ritz-Carlton, Koh Samui will participate by turning off non-essential lighting at Baan Talat. During this time, guests and Ladies and Gentlemen of the resort will be invited to light the Earth Hour-themed candles on stage and the evening will culminate with a Northern Thai candle dance performance.
“Each year, we celebrate Earth Hour and are reminded of the importance this event has in bringing awareness to the pressing issues of climate change” said Denise Naguib, Vice President of Sustainability and Supplier Diversity. “We have a responsibility, and an opportunity to share this message with the millions of guests and associates through bringing Earth Hour to life tonight, and continuing the focus every day through our sustainability and social impact platform, Serve 360.”
