As part of our commitment to combat climate change, Optus has supported Earth Hour nationally since its inception in 2006. Earth Hour is an initiative of World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and Fairfax, which encourages organisations and individuals to turn off their lights one day a year in March.The main aim of the campaign is to show support for climate change action and to promote energy efficiency beyond Earth Hour, making small actions everyday to achieve our goal in reducing global greenhouse gas emissions.
Optus has supported this initiative year on year by switching off lights and electrical appliances at many business sites and retail stores across Australia. On-site events and promotions have also taken place to raise awareness and to encourage staff to support Earth Hour by switching off at home.
This year Earth Hour will be held on Saturday 31st March from 8:30pm. Don’t forget to switch off your lights!
