Save Energy, Observe Earth Hour with The Westin Kuala Lumpur
In support of World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF), The Westin Kuala Lumpur participated in the annual Earth Hour from 8.30pm to 9.30pm on 25 March 2017. Lights in most back-of-house areas are turned off and dimmed in the hotel lobby, public areas and restaurants to demonstrate our commitment to protecting the environment and mitigating climate change. This information was communicated to all the guests, at the same time encouraging them to participate by turning off the lights and air-conditioning in their rooms.
Earth Hour is a worldwide grassroots movement encouraging individuals, communities, households and businesses across the globe to protect the planet. This has become a significant global event bringing attention to the devastating effects on a broad range of environmental issues since it was launched in Sydney, Australia in 2007. This global initiative calls on every individual, family and organization to participate in its cause by turning off the lights and other appliances consuming electricity for an hour. It is not only to save power, but to curb climate change. With a triple-bottom line approach in mind, The Westin Kuala Lumpur is committed to finding innovative ways to do more with less in a manner that makes business sense for the company. We are helping to drive sustainability efforts and build resilience by thinking about our buildings and business in a way that is agile and flexes with the changing needs of our guests, the environment and communities in which we are operating.
