For the fourth consecutive year, Doha Marriott Hotel is participating in the world’s largest public action for the environment, the Earth Hour. The Earth Hour is a global initiative where cities and towns around the world will switch off their lights for an hour and send a powerful message that it is time to take action on global warming and make a long term commitment to do more for Planet Earth. This year the Doha Marriott Hotel will switch off non-essential lighting on March 31 for one hour, between 8:30 pm and 9:30pm. In support of the planet the hotel will use candles to light up the lobby, restaurants, as well as the exterior its buildings. Hossein Garan, general manager of the Doha Marriott Hotel, said that the hotel is suggesting to their residents and guests to turn off or dim non-essential interior lightings and other electrical devices within the premises for 60 minutes starting from 8.30pm. At the end, the amount of energy saved will be measured and recorded accordingly by a team of experts. All hotel associates will support the Earth Hour by doing the same in their accommodation with their families and friends. Marriott International dedicated the month of April as environmental awareness month, when hotels pay special attention to and are very active in environmental related activities. Gulf Times
