While millions of people, businesses and governments worldwide switched off their lights for one hour for Earth Hour on 31 March 2012, 8.30pm (GMT+8), CapitaLand’s 235 CapitaLand properties across 79 cities in Asia and Europe switched off their facade and non-essential lightings for extended hours throughout the night. This is CapitaLand’s fifth year of participation in this annual global sustainability movement. Its commitment to do more for the environment is not new, nor limited to Earth Hour. It actively pursues leadership in green buildings and has been constantly promoting programmes such as Building A Greener Future to increase environmental awareness and to engage its stakeholders in making a difference to the environment. CapitaLand also supports eco-initiatives and wildlife conservation through the Group’s role as the Presenting Sponsor and Conservation Donor of the Giant Pandas Collaborative Programme.
