Earth Hour participation
Annually in March, the Earth Hour event is held worldwide. Earth Hour was initiated by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in 2007. Individuals, communities and businesses are encouraged to turn off the lights for one hour as a symbol for their commitment to the planet.
On Saturday 27 March 2021, for the 6th consecutive year, we supported this initiative by switching off non-essential lights at all our premises. We also encouraged our employees to participate at their homes, and linked their support to a tree planting sponsor action. As a result, 240 trees have been planted via the Trees for all foundation.
