Gloria Hotel Takes the Earth Hour to Next Level with Gloria Green Campaign

Gloria Hotel supported the Earth Hour initiative by lighting the candles on candle holders which were made out of recycled materials created by the hotel employees. Various items made out of recycled materials were put on display in the lobby marking the Green Globe the Hotel is part of. Lead by Freddy Farid, the Area General Manager, the hotel switched off the lights of the 41-storey building for one hour.

This annual lights-off environmental event is organized by Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) and Dubai Supreme Council of Energy to raise awareness of climate changes. Around 100 guests participated in the event from 8.30pm to 9.30pm on 24th March in the hotel lobby who were encouraged to participate in a raffle draw competition where they get a chance to win one night stay at the hotel.

Participating by implementing a range of energy-saving measures during Earth Hour, Gloria Hotel turned off their logo signage on the roof tops and the back offices, minimized the corridor lights, and minimized the lobby and restaurant lights. They have also involved their employees by turning off the lights at the staff accommodation and encouraged their in-house guests to participate by turning off the lights in their room.

This step is part of Gloria Hotels’ long term commitment – Gloria Green Program which focuses on more sustainable hotel operation and aims to be among the leading environment friendly hotels in Dubai.
