Yangon – 19 March, 2016. We are happy to announce that Chatrium Hotel Royal Lake Yangon participated again in the Earth Hour 2016 campaign.
Earth Hour is a global initiative organized by World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), held on the last Saturday of March, which asks households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights and electrical appliances for one hour to raise awareness of the need to take action on climate change. Earth Hour began as a single-city initiative – in Sydney, Australia – in 2007 and has since grown into a global movement with hundreds of millions of people from more than 7,000 cities and towns in 162 countries/territories across every continent switching off their lights for Earth Hour, creating history as the world’s greatest environmental action. In 2015, Millions of Earth Hour supporters worldwide joined forces to highlight the need for climate action. Revisit the highlights and energy the movement generated across the world! 172 countries and territories used Earth Hour to deliver a tangible environmental outcome and we hope to be part of that by making our own commitments too.
This year Earth Hour will take place on Saturday March 19, 2016 from 8.30pm – 9.30pm local time.In the lead-up to Earth Hour, WWF is encouraging everyone to make a “Change Climate Change” challenge to their work-mates, friends, family and people around the world to help save energy and save the planet.
The team of Chatrium Hotel Royal Lake Yangon will participate in this global initiative event by turning off non-essential lighting & electricity on the exterior, lobby, restaurants, offices and public areas from 8.30 pm – 9.30 pm local time on March 19, 2016. We also invite our guests to participate on a voluntarily basis in this event. Additionally, this year we will also raise awareness of Earth Hour with a candle lighting activity in the hotel Lobby Lounge and candle lit dinner in all restaurants from 8.30 pm to 9.30 pm. The hotel will also serve ‘Green Theme’ beverage to guests and media in the lobby lounge during the activity.
In addition to implementing green initiatives in the hotel all the year round, we formed a “Chatrium CSR Together” committee in 2015 and the committee is implementing a 3R (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) project and Think First Think Earth campaign in the hotel.
