Shangri-La Hotel, Dalian Organizes Bazaar and Auction for Earth Hour

In conjunction with the 2016 Earth Hour slogan, “Consume Less, Enjoy More”, Shangri-La Hotel, Dalian, the IS0 14001-certificated hotel in town, not only switched off all lighting and equipment during Earth Hour on 19 March 2016, but also organised a bazaar, auction and a “bicycle to generate the most energy” activity in the hotel lobby.

The hotel participated in the worldwide Earth Hour event organised by the World Wide Fund for Nature for the eighth consecutive year. The event encouraged the hotel’s in-house guests, corporate clients and partners to participate in Earth Hour and facilitated their commitment to environmental protection.

All guests staying in the 560 guestrooms and 195 residences were encouraged to join this global event through in-room letters recommending minimal use of electrical appliances, including personal mobile phones, lights and air conditioning, in the guestrooms.

From 5 to 9 p.m., guests could purchase all kinds of commodities at the bazaar, including special hotel amenities and articles for daily use and environmental protection. From 8:30 to 9:30 p.m., hotel executive committee members joined the “bicycle to generate the most energy” activity with the guests in the lobby.

The hotel artist and engineer’s “The Tractor”, which makes good use of eco-waste materials, was silently auctioned off from 10 to 18 March 2016. Finally, one hotel guest paid RMB5, 888 for it.

During Earth Hour, the hotel saved nearly 900 kilowatts of electricity by turning off the lights in 21 areas, including the hotel lobby and all restaurants and function rooms, including the Grand Ballroom. The saved energy is enough to power a lift for 176 hours, a guestroom for 1,330 hours, a restaurant for 63 hours or the 1,664-square-metre Grand Ballroom for 17 hours.

Shangri-La Hotel, Dalian demonstrates its energy-saving and low-carbon lifestyle in daily life. In 2010, the hotel successfully launched an LED lighting system, which saves the hotel nearly RMB1 million every year. Additionally, bed sheet and towel reuse cards are displayed in the guestrooms and bathrooms to encourage guests to use bed sheets and towels more than once to save water and reduce emissions. Meanwhile, the hotel has implemented garbage separation, double-side paper printing in the office and energy saving in its daily operations.
