Here’s an interesting convergence of community and corporate statements around the topic of Sustainability.
I just received two emails about the same topic. One, an employee internal message, the other from a customer in the ecosystem and a fellow blogger.
Good opportunity to share what individuals and organizations can do to spread awareness of reducing Carbon footprint, conserving energy and being creative about spreading the corporate sustainabiliy word.
Here’s the first from our own North American SAP Communications:
Tomorrow night, millions of people around the world will make a statement about climate change. Earth Hour, an international conservation event that calls for households and businesses to turn off their lights and non-essential appliances, takes place Saturday, March 29, 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. (local time).
Earth Hour was created by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and kicked-off in Sydney, Australia on March 31, 2007. The 2007 Earth Hour is estimated to have cut Sydney’s electricity consumption by between 2.1% and 10.2% for the hour, with as many as 2.2 million people taking part. In 2008, millions of people, businesses, governments, and civic organizations in nearly 35 countries will participate.
It’s not too late to join this effort to combat climate change – simply sign up for the Earth Hour movement and be ready to flip the switch tomorrow night at 8:00 p.m. Earth Hour also offers tips on what you and your family can do at home, at work, and at school to reduce your impact on our planet’s resources every hour, every day.
The second notice is from a customer company using a video to illustrate what they intend to do to “play their part in earth hour”. I see that Molson uses a community blog as it’s vehicle. For my, part, I’ll make sure to be in quiet mode. That means no
SDN, BPX, twitter, or other forms of electronic commerce.
Have a good weekend. I’m expecting our community to be among the millions participating.
