The four-star hotel switched off its main lighting and AC in public areas, while also asking hotel guests to do the same in their rooms for one hour. The event took place at 8:30pm on March 28 and also saw the hotel’s F&B venues stop delivery services to drive down CO2 emissions.
The annual lights-off environmental event is organised by Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) and Dubai Supreme Council of Energy. This year Two Seasons Hotel switched off its signage on back offices, minimised corridor lighting, along with lobby and restaurant lights.
Two Seasons Management Company MD Freddy Farid said: “It’s a privilege for us to support such a powerful movement with such simple gestures, Earth Hour also reflects a philosophy we try to practice year-round: The small steps each of us takes can make a big difference together.”
In December last year, the property was awarded Green Globe certification for its energy efficiency, water usage and waste management and recycling.Other initiatives include the installation of electric charging points at the property to promote the usage of electronic vehicles.
