The WWF created the annual global environmental awareness event 11 years ago!
Le Meridien Kochi 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. Le Meridien Kochi will participate by turn off exterior signage lighting; dim or turn off non- essential interior lighting; use candlelight in appropriate public areas such as restaurants and bars; and use in-room voicemail messages and in-room television messages to inform guests about Earth Hour observances.
Le Meridien Kochi will also participate in Marriott International’s drive to raise funds for WWF and all of our associates and guests will join this moment. “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.” Guided by its sustainability and social impact platform, Serve 360: Doing Good in Every Direction, Marriott is committed to making a positive and sustainable impact wherever it does business.
