On Saturday 29 March 2014, the lights will go out for an hour in 152 countries at 20.30 (local time). Earth Hour was initiated by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) to draw attention to the vulnerability of our planet and to send a message to governments, consumers and corporations that they need to take serious steps to halt climate change and reduce CO2 emissions. We need to reduce humanity’s ecological footprint.

We need to reduce humanity’s ecological footprint.

KLM first joined hands with WWF in 2007 and has developed a strong focus on CO2 reduction. We are also working hard to save energy on the work floor, to reduce the amount of waste we produce, and to make our catering more sustainable. KLM therefore wholeheartedly supports the Earth Hour campaign and strives to turn off the lights wherever possible in KLM buildings and offices. Our social media editorial team will also bring Earth Hour to the attention of all KLM fans and followers.

Earth Hour is one of the biggest and fastest growing movements in the world. Last year, a record 152 countries and more than 7,000 cities participated, leaving some of the world’s best known buildings cloaked in darkness. This year the lights will go out for an hour in the Eifel Tower, the Empire State Building and Tower Bridge.

If you’re at home on Saturday night, why not join the world in making a statement for nature by turning off the lights from 20.30 to 21.30.
