On Friday, 30 March 2012, Symphony organized an Earth Hour Awareness Day together with WWF. A stand was set up at the Symphony House’s Lobby Area selling WWF’s Earth Hour t-shirts and other merchandise including a one-time Animal Adoption Programme of endangered species. We managed to collect RM 3672.00 within the two and a half hours allocated time.
One Switch at a Time – 31 March, 2012
On Earth Hour Day itself, the following initiatives were carried out:
- Symphony signage lights were switched off from 7pm onwards and were only switched on again on Sunday evening.
- Only one out of six elevators was operating from 8.30pm to 9.30pm. The lifts at Symphony House are on energy- saving mode daily. When not in use, the lifts switch off automatically to conserve energy.
- Building perimeter lights were switched off from 8.30pm to 9.30pm
WWF Workplace Giving
In the third week of April, we will start with the 1st WWF Workplace Giving 2012 quarterly road show. There will be an awareness talk on the various WWF conservation projects and how our RM10.00 (minimum) monthly contribution through salary deduction can go a long way to help protect the country’s natural environment, save our home and our natural heritage. Let’s give from our hearts and help preserve our planet Earth.
