Hilton Abu Dhabi Celebrates Earth Hour and its Commitment to Living Sustainably

Hilton Abu Dhabi announced today that it will unite with Hilton Worldwide Team Members and franchisee employees around the world to protect the planet by participating in the celebration of Earth Hour 2015 through a number of innovative projects including:

 

 

  • ·         Candle lit dinners at all 15 Hilton Abu Dhabi restaurants & bars
  • ·         Cycle for light at Hiltonia Beach Club, Fitness & Spa
    • o   Guests are invited to put their fitness skills to the test; using their energy to light up bulbs in recognition of Earth Hour
  • ·         Candle lighting ceremony
    • o   More than 60 Hilton Abu Dhabi team members congregate to recognise Earth Hour in the lobby

 

 

Earth Hour will take place from 8:30pm to 9:30pm local time on Saturday, March 28, 2015. Hilton Abu Dhabi will be joining hundreds of Hilton Worldwide’s more than 4,300 global properties that will once again connect with guests in demonstration of their commitment to living sustainably.

 

 

“Celebrating Earth Hour is one of the many ways we demonstrate how we conserve waste, water and energy every day, and we are encouraging our guests and neighbours to join us in support of this global effort,” said Wolfgang Maier, general manager at Hilton Abu Dhabi. 

 

 

Participation in Earth Hour is part of Hilton Worldwide’s commitment to Living Sustainably, one of the four pillars of the company’s responsibility and sustainability strategy, Travel with Purpose. In 2014, Hilton Worldwide achieved ISO 50001certification in 2014 for energy management for its global portfolio through a major upgrade to LightStay, its proprietary measurement platform, which complements other global system-wide ISO certifications of ISO 9001 and 14001.

 

 

The original idea for Earth Hour was conceived by WWF in 2007 during a meeting held at Hilton Sydney, and Hilton Worldwide has a long history of supporting the event.

 

 

 

It’s a way for individuals and businesses to show how simple steps can make a significant impact on addressing climate change. When this worldwide effort began in Sydney, Australia more than two million people turned off their lights for an hour and reduced the city\'s energy consumption by more than 10 percent. It became a global movement in 2008 with more than 50 million people participating, and today has become the largest grassroots environmental movement in the world with more than 7,000 cities and towns in 162 countries and territories and hundreds of millions of people participating across seven continents. In 2014 alone hundreds of millions of people participated. This year’s theme focuses on climate change, one of the biggest environmental challenges our planet faces today.
