Canon support on Earth Hour 2013 Campaign

Mar 23, 2013

Earth HourEarth Hour is a global environmental activity led by WWF, uniting people to protect the planet. Towards the end of March every year, Earth Hour brings together communities from across the world celebrating a commitment to the planet by switching off lights for one designated hour.

The Earth Hour 2013 was held on Saturday March 23 at 8:30 PM (HK time) which has given people a chance to show their support and concern about climate change voiced to the world. In addressing the threat of climate change, Earth Hour also let people understand how simple everyday actions reduce the carbon footprint and impact the world’s resources.

Canon Electronic Business Machines (H.K.) Co. Ltd. (CEBM) has been continuously supported the earth hour event for the 4th year since 2010. In line with 2013 Earth Hour’s concept - I Will If You Will, which encourage an individual or as part of a community or organization to share their ongoing environmental commitment to others beyond the hour, not only did CEBM staff support Earth Hour 2013 by dress black day and turning off PCs, monitors on Friday March 22, but CEBM also switching off lights for one hour in office everyday for over 5 years. To live every day like it is Earth Hour day, we can make a difference through a simple action that anyone can participate in. Let’s adopt a low-carbon lifestyle.

Enjoy Earth Hour together and continuous to practice a low carbon lifestyle everyday!
