April 18, 2017
MILTON KEYNES, UK - Hilton Milton Keynes celebrated Earth Hour 2017 from 8:30p.m.-9:30p.m. on Saturday, March 25.

- Guests were informed about Earth Hour upon check-in and through letters left in guest rooms
- Information about Earth Hour was displayed in the lobby
- An Earth Hour quiz was given to every child at the hotel together with a glow in the dark stick
- A sustainable and healthy, Earth Hour themed menu was made available at New Horizons Lounge & Bar

- Team members from different departments worked together to create a herb garden at the back of the hotel. They planted a walnut tree in recognition of the local area along with oregano, thyme and rosemary.
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.
