Celebrate Earth Hour 2021 with City Lodge Hotels

Eco-warriors around the world are poised to mark Earth Hour 2021 by turning off non-essential lights from 8:30pm to 9:30pm on Saturday, 27 March 2021. City Lodge Hotel Group is inviting you to join us at your local Courtyard Hotel, City Lodge Hotel, Town Lodge or Road Lodge to do the same.

“We are encouraging our hotel teams to be creative during this year’s Earth Hour. The team at central office will be keeping an eye on our energy dashboard to see how much less energy we have used during this time,” says Lindiwe Sangweni-Siddo, chief operating officer.

She adds, “While Earth Hour aims to raise awareness of the many issues the planet is facing in a fun and simple way, at City Lodge Hotel Group there are numerous ways in which conserving the planet is placed alongside people and profit in importance, in our ‘triple bottom line’ of sustainability. Our guests love being involved too, and know that a stay with us is a lighter footprint on the environment.”

The group’s “sustainabili-tree” mirrors its logo, with sustainability integrated into operations and branching off in several directions at once, including:

  • Water and energy conservation
  • Waste reduction
  • Solar power at 25 hotels
  • Amenities with no single-use plastics
  • Community upliftment projects to help those in need
  • Animal anti-cruelty with commitment to cage-free eggs
  • Technology to reduce paper while offering safe, contactless operations
  • Courtyard Hotel Waterfall City awarded four-star rating for hotel design from the Green Building Council of SA
