IBEROSTAR Hotels & Resorts to Participate in the United Nation’s Initiative, World Environment Day, to Raise Global Awareness for the Need to Care for the Earth
IBEROSTAR Will Once Again Support this Initiative through a Series of Initiatives and Programs at its Hotels Around the World
Madrid, June 2, 2015 – On Friday, June 5, more than 100 of IBEROSTAR Hotels & Resorts’ hotels will be taking part in World Environment Day, the United Nation’s chief initiative for raising worldwide awareness of environmental conservation.
The UN global initiative began in 1972 and has evolved into a worldwide platform commemorated in more than 100 countries. The theme for the 2015 edition of World Environment Day (WED) is “Seven billion dreams. One planet. Consume with care”, highlighting the ultimate responsibility to manage the planet’s natural resources and to promote sustainable consumption.
World Environment Day serves as the day to care for the environment in order to create a more durable society, galvanizing individual actions into a collective power that generates a positive impact on the planet.
IBEROSTAR is eager to contribute once again to this year’s World Environment Day. As a result, all hotels will be carrying out a series of initiatives aimed at raising guests’ awareness to care for and protect the environment. The company plans to include initiatives geared towards the promotion of good environmental practices, energy savings, recycling, wildlife conservation, and the integration of local cultures, as well as other specific actions in each country that IBEROSTAR operates in.
Environmental workshops will also be organized for guests of all ages. At the Maxiclubs, younger guests (ages 13 to 17 years) will put on a fashion show featuring outfits and accessories they have made from reused materials. Children will also be able to plant a tree or shrub on the hotel grounds. Additionally, participants in the Miniclubs (ages 4 to 12 years) will have the chance to make their very own coloring books from recycled paper.
WED aims to place a far more human perspective on environment-related issues, bringing these issues closer to people and making them understand that even the smallest actions count. IBEROSTAR is determined to back this excellent cause that seeks to promote fair and sustainable development while also raising awareness regarding the key roles communities play in bringing about these changes.
