Energetics Proud Supporters of Earth Hour - 29th March 2008, 8.00pm

In 2007, Energetics was proud to support the Sydney-based initiative and in 2008, we will again take the pledge to support Earth Hour on a national basis.

 

Earth Hour

When 2.2 million Sydney households and businesses turned off the lights for Earth Hour on 31 March 2007, the city sent a powerful message to the world that it's possible to take action on climate change. In 2008, Earth Hour takes place at 8pm on Saturday 29 March and we challenge your business to take part and help make Earth Hour bigger and better in 2008.

Created to take a stand against the greatest threat our planet has ever faced, Earth Hour uses the simple action of turning off the lights for one hour to deliver a powerful message about the need for action on global warming.

This simple act has captured the hearts and minds of people all over the world. As a result, at 8pm on the 29 March, 2008 millions of people in some of the world’s major capital cities, including Copenhagen, Toronto, Chicago, Melbourne, Brisbane, Tel Aviv and Manila will unite and switch off for Earth Hour.

If Australia's commercial sector turned off lights when buildings weren't in use and combined this action with other cost effective technology they could reduce lighting emissions by 70%, this would save 2-4 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions. Earth Hour aims to show these companies how easy and cost efficient these changes can be through case studies of companies that have already achieved massive reductions in their emissions.
