In Mindanao, SM City Cagayan de Oro, SM City Davao, SM City General Santos and SM Lanang Premier, in partnership with the World Wide Fund for Nature Philippines, will be one with the Earth Hour movement, renewing their commitment to meaningful climate solutions. For 60 minutes, from 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm, lights will go out in support of sustainable mall operations and energy consumption.
A program is slated on Saturday, 7:30 pm at SM Mindanao malls. Various stakeholders from the public and private sectors, socio-civic organizations and residents of nearby communities are expected to join the said celebration with this year’s theme “Shine A Light On Climate Action”
Earth Hour, a lights-off event that started in Australia in 2007, is recognized as the world’s largest voluntary action for the environment. It has grown to engage more than 162 countries and territories worldwide.
In the Philippines, SM Supermalls actively participates in the Earth Hour. Through its corporate social responsibility arm – SM Cares, it has championed the need to mitigate climate change and embarked on projects that push for environmental protection and sustainability.
