Hotel The Ashok & The Samrat, celebrate Earth Hour – takes company-wide initiatives to build a better planet.
ITDC hotels took part in Earth Hour Celebrations vowing towards sustainability. Every year people celebrate Earth hour by taking action to increase environmental awareness and make transformative change for the planet. It is a yearly milestone that marks an opportunity to reflect on some year-round steps companies are taking to protect the Earth. ITDC as a group is committed to multiple focus areas for protecting the earth: carbon reduction, carbon-neutral meetings, water conservation, minimizing waste, responsible sourcing, and ecolabels. In addition to food waste reduction efforts, ITDC also pledged to minimize plastic waste by prohibiting the use of plastic in all hotels. ITDC hopes to encourage all within the hospitality industry to curb its environmental impact as well as inspire a new sustainable model that brings about enduring changes to the environment. Earth Hour is an annual global event organised by the World Wide Fund for Nature. This year's event highlights the link between the destruction of nature and increasing outbreaks of diseases like Covid-19.
