(MENAFN Press) Rosewood Corniche has announced that it will join the Earth Hour movement on Saturday 29 March at 8:30pm KSA time to draw attention to the worldwide issue of global warming.







The hotel will turn off all exterior lighting and dim the lights in public areas for one hour at the end of this month, while the hotel's restaurants Habsburg, Noodles, Soleil and Ginza I Chome, will be lit with candles. Guests will also be encouraged to participate in the initiative by turning off the lights in their rooms.







Hans Peter-Leitzke, Managing Director of Rosewood Corniche, said: "The hotel is committed to actively participate and support any programme which works to preserve our planet. Observing Earth Hour is one of the activities we uphold in relation to our corporate responsibilities for the environment







"By taking part in this movement, we are demonstrating our commitment to protect the environment, and proactively seeking ways to conduct business in a sustainable manner by putting environmental responsibility at the forefront of our business objectives."







Rosewood Corniche will join major landmarks around the world including the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge, the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, the Houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace in London and New York's Empire State Building as they turn off the lights for an hour to take a stand on climate change.







Saudi Wild Life, the official representative of Earth Hour in Saudi Arabia, is working hard to ensure individuals, companies and government institutions take action, during the hour and beyond, to help make a positive change







Earth Hour started in Sydney in 2007, when 2.2 million people turned off all non-essential lights for an hour. Since then it has snowballed into a global event with more than 1.8 billion individuals across 130 countries and 5251 cities switching off lights. Earth Hour will begin in New Zealand and Australia, gradually travelling west as the planet goes dark.
