Concorde Fujairah Hotel, a luxury accommodation in the heart of the city, took part in observing Earth Hour 2013 by turning off lights and unnecessary electrical devices in the hotel for one hour.
The property’s staff and guests gathered in the lobby and lighted candles to signify their support in Earth Hour’s cause, which is to raise awareness on energy conservation and climate change.
Mohamed Fekry, General Manager, Concorde Fujairah Hotel, said, “We proudly support Earth Hour as this is a very significant global initiative which encourages people to take actions against climate change. This demonstrates that small acts can create big impact for our planet. We hope that saving energy will be observed in the hospitality sector, not just during Earth Hour, but throughout the year.”
Earth Hour took place on 23rd March and was participated in by more than 100 countries. Organised by the World Wildlife Fund, the initiative continues to gain millions of supporters around the world since its inception in Australia in 2007.
