Radisson Blu Resort Fiji Denarau Island celebrated Earth Hour with a purpose last Saturday night.

General manager Gerard Knight said: “Earth Hour represents what can be achieved as a planet and we hope our event helps you remember, that our individual actions add up to making a difference collectively.”

“Responsible business initiatives are at the heart of the Radisson Blu Resort Fiji and at Carlson Rezidor properties worldwide and it was therefore important for the Radisson team to shine a light on climate action.”

The resort is being recognised by Earthcheck as a leader in the sustainable tourism operators that is environmentally friendly.

Additionally guests are encouraged to turn off unnecessary lights in their rooms for one hour and joining the candle-lit dinner hosted throughout the evening.

“The goal for the resort is to be informative about the reality of climate change, and that change must be implemented in order to make a positive impact on the environment.

“Amongst other efforts, the resort itself uses 20 per cent of their energy from solar panels that are installed on the roofs of each building,” he said.

Mr Knight said the Radisson Blu Resort Fiji Denarau Island had set an action plan in order to become more environmentally friendly.

“These actions include minimising quantity of waste to landfill.”
