BALI, Indonesia - Conrad Bali will celebrate Earth Hour 2017 from 8:30-9:30p.m. on Saturday, March 25. The hotel is taking action locally to conserve energy and raise awareness of climate change, joining a global initiative that is open to Hilton's more than 4,900 properties across 104 countries and territories.

"Earth Hour is a unique opportunity for Conrad Bali team members and guests to participate in the world's largest global climate change initiative." said Federic Lebegue, general manager of Conrad Bali. "Conrad Bali would like to bring the experience of the locally sourced ingredients especially from Bali at our beachfront restaurant, Eight Degrees South."

Team Members and Guests at Conrad Bali will celebrate Earth Hour through the following activities:

  • Hosting Earth Week Set Menu at Eight Degrees South Beachfront Restaurant.

  • Reducing main building exterior lighting.

  • Dimming of interior lights in main areas.

  • Encouraging guests to switch off their room lights and air conditioning.

The Conrad Bali also invites its local community to participate in Hilton's global Earth Hour social media contest. Building on the event's core theme - turning off the lights for an hour to save energy - contestants are invited to submit a photo and caption showing how they celebrated the event.

The contest's grand prize offers travel and accommodation, including a five-night stay at the spectacular Canopy by Hilton Reykjavik City Centre in Iceland. The #TravelwithPurposeContest opens March 21 and closes on April 1. A winner will be announced on Earth Day, April 22.

In 2015, Hilton and WWF announced a multi-year commitment to collaborate on a water-stewardship strategy, expand sustainable seafood efforts, advance food waste efforts and accelerate the adoption of renewable energy across Hilton's portfolio.

Hilton views sustainability as a key part of its business. Water, energy, food, commodities, waste requirements and other factors significantly impact the economics of the company's business every day around the world. For this reason, preserving the environment is a business imperative and a cornerstone of Travel with Purpose, the company's corporate responsibility strategy to create shared value for Hilton Team Members, guests, business partners and communities.
