Enlightened Citizens of the World ‘in the dark’ for Earth Hour

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: 

Dear Colleagues, 

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.   

Best Regards,

Jennifer Lankheim


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.
