Severe storms, heat waves, and floods around the world: Climate change is leaving increasingly clear signs of destruction. Natural phenomena that were isolated in the past are now occurring more and more frequently in all regions of the world. According to the World Wide Fund for Nature, the main reason for climate change is the increase in carbon dioxide (CO2) content in the atmosphere. In response to continued climate change, lights around the world will be extinguished for one hour on March 25, 2023, at Earth Hour. The motto of the environmental movement is “60 minutes for a living planet”. Millions of people in cities and companies around the world at 8:30 pm local time: Turn off lights to protect the climate. We will reveal how you can also participate as a company and set an example for environmental protection.
Earth Hour is a climate and environmental protection campaign launched by the World Wide Fund for Nature, traditionally held on the last Saturday of March. The idea behind it: Once a year, millions of people around the world turn off the lights for an hour and then light candles. Thousands of cities and communities from all continents are also involved, and their most famous buildings are shrouded in darkness.
The campaign hopes to set a global example for environmental and climate protection and draw attention to the intensification of global warming. In 2007, they began turning off the lights for an hour in Sydney, Australia – while Earth Hour has become a global sport. Municipalities and companies can also participate in Earth Hour 2023, setting an example for climate protection.
Sustainable Energy Conservation – 5 Tips and Techniques
Say goodbye to carbon dioxide: Saving energy can be so simple – not only for the benefit of the planet, but also for your own wallet. Whether as an individual or in industry – climate friendly behavior can easily integrate into daily life and save time, money, and resources. Because the best energy for the environment and humanity is the energy that is preserved.
Replacing traditional bulbs with energy-saving bulbs or LED lamps can save money and energy in a short time, thereby making a positive contribution to climate protection. If a standard 100 watt bulb is replaced with a 20 watt CFL, a total of 1200 kilowatt hours (kWh) can be saved over the entire lifetime of the CFL. With this energy, for example, you can run a heat pump for a full month – at current electricity prices, which is also an economic reason to save energy. Dimming the light output also has an important impact: You only use the energy you actually need, and you can also benefit from lower energy costs and pleasant lighting.
