Canon reports stellar Earth Hour participation

Canon reports stellar Earth Hour participation

April 23, 2018

This week the OEM announced that 323 of the Company’s offices and operating sites across 39 countries and regions participated in Earth Hour 2018.

These statistics mark an even greater participation than that of 2017’s event.

Earth Hour 2018 was held in each locale from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. (local time) on 24 March 2018.

Earth Hour is a global environmental initiative organised by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) that began in 2007. The event encourages individuals, communities, households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights for one hour as a statement to stop climate change and protect the global environment.

Canon explained that it has been expanding its lights-out activities around the world. Across various locations, Canon Group companies turned off lights at offices and operating sites as well as neon signs. This year’s event started in Oceania, which is closest to the International Date Line, and moved around the world through Asia, Europe and the Americas.

As an example of some of the activities carried out by individual Group companies, Canon (UK) Ltd. actively encouraged employees through the company’s intranet site to participate in five specific activities: sharing your own lights out moment on social media, turning off electric lights and having a candlelit dinner party, going to your favourite viewing spot to see the lights switch off, improving your low-light photography skills and sharing the photos on social media, and making small promises for the planet such as those listed on the WWF website.
