Earth Hour 2015- Turn off the lights

Published

24th Mar, 2015

Earth Hour is one of the fastest growing global movements. It is a plea to take pause and consider the future of our planet. On 28 March, starting at 20.30 CET, millions of people will turn off their lights for an hour. Last year, more than 7,000 cities and municipalities in 162 countries took part in Earth Hour. In so doing, they sent a message and inspired others to take part in a movement dedicated to the conservation of our wonderful planet!

World-famous buildings were also shrouded in darkness for an hour. This year they will include the Eifel Tower, the Empire State Building and Tower Bridge. In the Netherlands, the start of Earth Hour will be officially marked at the Maritime Museum in Amsterdam.

KLM has been partnered with the World Wide Fund for Nature since 2007 and is committed to reducing CO2 emissions by 20% in 2020 (compared to 2011). We are also working hard to save energy on the work floor, reduce waste and make catering more sustainable. KLM therefore wholeheartedly supports Earth Hour and will turn off lights wherever possible in KLM buildings and offices.
