Sheraton, St. Regis hold blackout in support of earth hour

Sheraton Grand Macao Hotel and The St. Regis Macao conducted one-hour blackouts on March 30 to shine a light on climate action in support of Earth Hour 2019. The hotels joined millions around the world in turning off their lights at 8:30 p.m. local time to illuminate a powerful message about environmental awareness and action.

The World Wildlife Fund created the annual global environmental awareness event 12 years ago to emphasize the threat of climate change.

Sheraton Grand Macao Hotel and The St. Regis Macao participated by turning off exterior lighting, dimming or turning off non-essential interior lighting, and informing guests about Earth Hour observances through digital kiosks and screens.

“It’s our honor to support such a meaningful movement.” said Saurabh Bakshi, General Manager of Operations of Sheraton Grand Macao Hotel and The St. Regis Macao. “Earth Hour reflects a philosophy we try to practice all year-round: The small steps each of us take together every day can make a big difference in the long run.”
