Banif Bank (Malta) plc is once again joining Banif Financial Group and other companies around the world and switching off all auxiliary lights across its branch network for Earth Hour. On Saturday 29th March between 8.30pm and 9.30pm millions of people across the globe will be doing the same, in what has grown to be a global collective action in solidarity with the planet and the environment.
“Earth Hour is but one initiative Banif Bank takes in connection with the environment it operates in,” said Adrian Coppini, Chief Officer Corporate Services at Banif Bank. “We take great care to ensure the smallest possible environmental footprint, factoring in the best ways to use energy and maximise the use of daylight and other natural resources. As Earth Hour is doing, we urge people to go beyond this symbolic event and embrace a lifestyle that is kinder to the planet and a more sustainable future.”
Earth Hour is a young project. But over the short period of six years it grew to become the world’s largest mass participation event ever. From a single city event in 2007 Earth Hour now mobilises 7,000 cities in 7 continents bringing together millions of people in one joint action on climate change. Earth Hour is a global environmental movement, and part of WWF.
