Conrad Xiamen held its own Earth Hour 2018 celebration on March 24th, 2018. The celebration started at 8:30 p.m. and ended at 9:30 p.m.


During the event, Conrad Xiamen turned off its landmark building’s exterior lighting to save energy, and also hosted a romantic candlelight cocktail party indoors. By coincidence, a new couple was holding their wedding at the hotel’s ballroom that night. After a brief conversation, the new couple gladly agreed to switch off most of the lighting for their wedding banquet for one hour.



The energy saved by turning off the lights for an hour pales in comparison to the energy consumed by having the lights on all year round; but the small gesture represents the ideal we should all strive for--saving energy and working to help save the environment. Conrad Xiamen is deeply aware of the importance of sustainability, which was why the organization decided to take the lead on reducing the hotel’s daily consumption of water, food, energy, and other resources to help to preserve the environment and make the hotel a better community partner.



The hotel also places a card with a slogan on it in every room to remind its in-house guests to save water. Guests can also use the card as a signal to tell hotel cleaners how often to change linens--daily or every other day.




The hotel hopes to raise public awareness of environmental protection by hosting relevant meetings and events such as cycling, and by encouraging people to use staircases over elevators, turn off shower water when soaping up, switch off office lights after work, print on both sides of paper or print on the back of paper after a misprint, take only what one can eat, etc.



In addition, Conrad Xiamen also held an “Earth Hour”-themed T-shirt charity sale with six other Hilton Hotels in Fujian province. The price for each T-shirt was RMB 60. All money raised by the charity sale was donated to the Putian City Social Welfare Center.
