Bahía del Duque joins the Worldwide Blackout promoted by the WWF
The hotel is supporting the initiative called “Earth Hour” for the eighth consecutive year in order to support the fight against climate change
March 2018.- Bahía del Duque is participating in the worldwide blackout taking place tomorrow Saturday, 24 March, all over the world, promoted by the wildlife conservation organization WWF with the aim of denouncing climate change.
The Hotel is supporting this initiative, called Earth Hour, for its eighth consecutive year. From 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. much of the lighting in the restaurants, pools, and several other common areas will be turned off, while staff will be lighting more than 2,000 candles, torches and lanterns throughout the facilities.
Bahía del Duque’s management team has also planned to celebrate a special theme night for its clients and is inviting them to actively participate in the event by lighting their rooms with only candles. There will also be jugglers and acrobats performing with fire and special lights in the area of La Placita and the Bernegal restaurant’s garden.
Beyond this particular annual event, the Hotel continuously promotes the respect for and protection of the environment throughout the year by supporting rational use of natural resources. This includes reducing its consumption of fuel, electricity and water, reducing the amount of waste and facilitating its recycling, and holding a contest called Environmental Champion among its staff, with an award of prize money for the most environmentally sustainable idea. These actions, among others, form part of the Corporate Responsibility Policy, which include within its objectives the aim to actively participate in the social, economic and environmental improvement of the surrounding area.
As has become customary, more and more emblematic buildings and monuments throughout the Spanish territory such as the Alhambra (Granada), Cibeles, (Madrid), the Sagrada Familia (Barcelona) and the Guggenheim Museum, (Bilbao), are adhering to the Earth Hour solidarity movement, which includes a multitude of other sites on an international scale including the Golden Gate Bridge (San Francisco) and the Empire State Building (New York), in the United States.
