Guests of The Manor at Camp John Hay in Baguio City get both peace and peace-of-mind whenever they book their stay at this 2004 ASEAN Energy and 2014 ASEAN Green Hotel awardee.
A premier hotel nestled within the City of Pines, The Manor is the newest supporter of Check Out for Nature, a programme of the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).
Check Out for Nature was created by the WWF Global Network and The Leading Hotels of the World in Europe, Asia and the Middle East to develop easy but impactful ways for guests to support WWF projects.
The initiative allows guests to add one dollar (USD1) per night to their bill as their donation to WWF projects in the Philippines. These range from the conservation of the Tubbataha Reefs in Palawan to programmes that enable Filipino communities to best face escalating storms, floods and other climate change impacts. Check Out for Nature also raises awareness about environmental issues and inspires guests to take proactive steps in saving the planet.
“Time is in fast forward – and so is climate change. We cannot reverse what has been done, but there is still hope if we take action today,” notes The Manor at Camp John Hay General Manager Ramon Cabrera. “By initiating cultural change, we will promote environmental conservation. By partnering with WWF, plus our own progressive campaigns to save Mother Earth, guests can actively participate in our thrust to actually ‘Make It Better’.”
The Manor at Camp John Hay is also a part of the Zero Carbon Resorts and has always supported Earth Hour, WWF’s annual lights-out event which is regarded as the world’s largest recurring mass-action for the environment.
“We are honoured to have The Manor at Camp John Hay as a Check Out for Nature partner,” says WWF-Philippines Marketing Vice-president Michelle Mohinani. “We started the programme with two excellent beach resorts in Palawan. Now, a hotel in the mist-shrouded pine forests of Baguio has committed to support our environmental efforts. It goes to show that more establishments are becoming conscious of their ecological impacts and their capacity to help through simple yet powerful ways. We encourage guests of The Manor at Camp John Hay to support WWF. Each dollar is an investment towards a better future.” (30)
