Starting as a symbolic lights out event in Sydney in 2007, Earth Hour is now the world’s largest grassroots movement for the environment, inspiring millions of people to take action for our planet and nature.
Several AmCham members took part in this global initiative:
- Cementarnica USJE turned off the cement mills, saving over 10 MWh of electricity, which is approximately the amount of energy necessary to power about 20,000 light bulbs.
- Makedonski Telekom turned off the lights in the administrative building in the centre of Skopje, thus sending a message for saving the planet Earth.
- KPMG Macedonia’s local team also supported Earth Hour by switching off their lights to raise awareness of climate change.
