News > IO Centers Participated in Earth Hour 2011

26th March 2011


It is not just one hour. It’s about making a commitment to ongoing change that reduces the negative impact on the environment and celebrating your commitment to the planet Earth.

Earth Hour, an initiation started by Sydney, Australia in the year 2007 organized by the WWF has become a global sustainability movement with the participation of over 128 countries and territories making the Earth hour one of the world’s largest global climate change initiative.

We, at IO Centers have not been very far behind in contributing to this Global Initiative. We have been actively participating in the Earth Hour since the year 2008. As part of our contribution, IO Centers’ Offices, situated in the Arraya Center and at Dar Al Awadi, switched off all non-essential lighting and electrical appliances for an hour during this time of the Earth Hour in the past years.

For the Earth Hour 2011, IO Centers decided to go beyond the hour and make an extra effort. As tradition, we switched off all non-essential lighting and electrical appliances for an hour on March 26, 2011 at 8:30 PM.

As an added initiative, we are encouraging our employees and clients to switch off all non-essential lightings and electrical appliances from here on at our Centers. We are implementing a 3R “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle? plan and are avoiding the use of the “stand by? option for electronic appliances during non-business hours.

As supported and quoted by Mr. Hamad Al Homaizi, Managing Partner of IO Centers, “Earth Hour is an important, symbolic event that demonstrates that even small steps, when taken on a global scale, can make a difference in addressing climate change?.
