The Asset Group will be ‘switching off’ its head office facilities in support of Earth Hour tonight at 8.30pm.

World Wildlife Fund (WWF)’s Earth Hour is the world’s largest movement to protect our planet. Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, when 2.2 million individuals and more than 2,000 businesses turned their lights off for one hour to take a stand against climate change.

Millions of people around the world in more than 7,000 cities in over 190 countries will be taking part by switching off for 60 minutes as a symbolic gesture to show we all care about our planet’s future– our shared home.

2021 presents a significant opportunity to encourage world leaders into action. In a few months, representatives from all over the globe will be attending the 15th meeting of the United Nations Conference of the Parties (COP 15) to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) in Kunming, China. 

The state of nature and biodiversity will be the focus for this conference, and global plans will be made for the next 10 years – decisions that will affect not only the next decade, but all of the futures for many years to come.

With enough public support, this conference could be the conference where an international commitment is secured by being signed to by our world’s leaders – to end nature loss and put our planet on the path to recovery by 2030.  

When we make changes in our own lives, and when we share that with others, we also inspire the people around us to change – and we help grow a movement that businesses and governments can’t ignore.
