On Saturday, March 28, 2009, at 8:30 pm, MAXIS will be taking part in what promises to be an amazing and inspiring event in the fight against climate change—Earth Hour, sponsored by the World Wide Fund For Nature (WWF).
By simply turning off all non-essential lighting for one hour at our locations and facilities across MALAYSIA, we will join tens of millions of concerned citizens and corporations throughout the world in calling for action to save our planet for future generations.
More than 50 million people in 370 cities around the world took part in Earth Hour 2008. The lights went out at Sydney’s Opera House, Rome’s Coliseum, the Empire State Building and the Golden Gate Bridge. Even the Google homepage went dark for the day.
This year, Earth Hour promises to be even bigger. In MALAYSIA many cities have already pledged to participate…with more signing up daily.
To get a better sense of the magnitude and inspiring nature the event, please take a moment to watch WWF’s video about Earth Hour 2009 at www.youtube.com/watch?v=BjWD8pbK5t8.
To help us make sure the lights actually do go out on March 28th, we’d like to ask that all employees to switch off office lights and unplug non-essential equipment before leaving the building on the Friday before Earth Hour. In addition, we’d like to encourage everyone to participate in Earth Hour by turning off their lights at home during the event.
Participating in Earth Hour is easy, fun and absolutely free. For more information and to sign up for the event, visit http://www.earthhour.org/ where you’ll find fun tips for what you and your family and friends can do when the lights go out.
Energy efficiency is not only good for the bottom line - our company has long believed that we have a responsibility to operate our business in a responsible manner and in ways that don’t deplete our world’s limited natural resources.
We’re excited about Earth Hour and hope you are too. Join us in uniting with the world to make a difference for our planet. Don’t forget—March 28th at 8:30 pm, switch off.
ps: bangga jugak aku sebab company ni join this good cause to save OUR WORLD. Dan aku dah sign up pun untuk kempen ni. why don't you? (^_^)
