Earth Hour Activities (Lights off) 2018

EARTH HOUR 2018

It was “lights off” for global Canon Group companies during the worldwide Environmental event “Earth Hour,” held on March 24, 2018

“Earth Hour” is a global environmental movement, started by the WWF in 2007, during which people share their desire to stop global warming and protect the global environment by turning off lights at a certain day and time (from 8:30pm to 9:30pm local time). Earth Hour 2018 took place across 188 countries and regions.

This year’s lights-off activities at Canon Group companies around the world!

Canon fully supports the concept of Earth Hour and has held a global “lights-off event” across Canon Group companies around the world since 2016. Our event started in Oceania, which is closest to the International Date Line, and moved around the world to Asia, Europe and Americas. This year a total of 323 Group Company offices and operating sites across 38 countries and regions participated in the event, with Canon Medical Systems Corporation participating as part of the Canon Group for the first time.

Canon U.K. invites their Employee to the Earth Hour 2018

Canon U.K. invites their Employee to take part and have their own “switch off hour” to promote a more sustainable future, through their intranet. In their invitation, they highlighted five actions to show support for action on climate:

  • Record your own lights off moment and share with the world using #EathHour on social media.
  • Have a candlelit dinner party and use this opportunity to have an hour of quality time with your loved ones without any distractions.
  • Go to your favorite view spot or landmark in your town to witness the switch off.
  • Improve your low light photography skills and take snaps of your candlelit evening, wildlife or stars and share them with us on SNS.
  • If you’re feeling inspired, you can make one promise to protect our planet.
