Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon Marks Earth Hour on March 25

 Monday, March 20, 2023 


Earth Hour began in 2007 in Sydney, Australia. Created by the World Wildlife Fund, it is now an annual event that brings attention to climate change, and for 60 minutes every March, participants all over the world turn off their lights and non-essential electronics.

“At 8:30 pm on March 25 Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon will be switching off the famous RITZ blue neon letters on the Hotel’s rooftop to bring awareness to climate change. With its commitment to this WWF initiative, the Hotel aims not only to involve employees, but also guests, and help increase society’s awareness of the importance of looking after our planet for future generations,” explains General Manager Guilherme Costa.

The Hotel will participate in several activities including: turning off exterior signage lighting; dimming or turning off non-essential interior lighting and the Ritz Spa will be warmly lit by candlelight that evening. Guests will also have an especially dedicated in-room amenity created by the Hotel’s Pastry Chef Diogo Lopes.

With this gesture, the Hotel is demonstrating its firm commitment to preserving and regenerating the environment and leaving a positive, enduring impact on its local community.

Below are some of the sustainability initiatives the Hotel has recently implemented:
