Going Dark to Celebrate Earth Hour

On March 28th, 2015, from 8:30 – 9:30 pm local time, citizens, governments, and businesses from over 162 countries will turn off their lights for one hour in a symbolic action to bring attention to climate change and environmental sustainability. Known as “Earth Hour”, the open source movement was created by the World Wildlife Foundation (WWF) in 2007 and has grown from an event in one city to one that is celebrated by millions worldwide each year.  

Symantec will join this inspiring grassroots movement by powering down nonessential lights in our offices around the world.  Additionally, as Earth Hour aims to “turn the inspirations of one hour into the actions of every hour”, we’d like to reflect upon our efforts at Symantec to do this. From the success of our Green Teams to celebrating Earth Day worldwide to green talks inspiring sustainable lifestyles, we strive to operate every day in an environmentally sound manner, both as individuals and as a company.
