Hotel supports worldwide Earth Hour movement for the environment

JW Marriott Mumbai Sahar goes dark to shine a light on climate action with Earth Hour 2017. The hotel will join millions around the world in turning off lights for one hour on March 25th from 8:30 pm to 9.30 pm to illuminate a powerful message about environmental awareness and action. The annual global environmental awareness event was created and instituted by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in 2007 to emphasize the threat of climate change.

JW Marriott Mumbai Sahar is participating by having their lights dimmed in the public areas (lobby and restaurants) for an hour to support the ‘Earth Hour’ movement. Employees would be gathered for the ‘Earth Hour 2017’ candle formation at the Dining Theatre.

JW Marriott Mumbai Sahar will also ask the guests at the property to join in and support this global movement that spreads awareness and action for the betterment of the environment, by switching off the lights of their room from 8.30pm to 9.30pm on 25th March, 2017. By demonstrating these efforts on social media, JW Marriott Mumbai Sahar will be participating in Marriott International’s drive to raise funds for WWF, where US $1 will be donated for each Marriott property that tweets their Earth Hour activities.

“It’s a privilege for us to support such a powerful movement with such a simple gesture,” said Denise Naguib, Vice President of Sustainability and Supplier Diversity, “Earth Hour reflects a philosophy we try to practice year-round that we all must do our part and together we can make a big difference. Climate change affects everyone and it also has an impact on the continued success of our business.”
