Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) will once again take part in global green event Earth Hour at the end of this month.
The venue will join a global community of millions of people in 7,001 cities and towns across 152 countries when it “switches off” for an hour on 23 March at 8.30pm.
Earth Hour is a global environmental initiative in partnership with the WWF. It aims to have to a billion people switch off their lights for an hour, to highlight the issue of climate change.
Last year more than 6,950 cities and towns in 152 countries worldwide switched off their lights for Earth Hour 2012, the largest increase in participants since 2009.
“Earth Hour is a great addition to the sustainable initiatives in place at AECC,” said AECC MD Brian Horsburgh. “Having been accredited with the Gold Award from the Green Business Tourism Scheme in December 2012, AECC are delighted to once again be supporting this great initiative of the WWF.”
