The worldwide effort calls for individuals and businesses to tunr off all non-essential lights for one hour on Saturday, March 29, between 8 and 9 p.m. Earth Hour is run by the World Wildlife Fund and is aimed at demonstrating how small actions on a large scale can have a tremendous impact on energy consumption. The endeavor is a great way to highlight the commercial real estate industry's energy-efficiency and sustainability efforts in a global context. To participate, go to (www.earthhour.org/sign-up) to register your buildings. Plan ahead and coordinate with the appropriate personnel from your buildings to ensure that all non-essential lighting is off during the hour. After the event, statistics will be posted at (www.earthhour.org) about how many people around the world participated and approximately how much energy was saved.
