2 WHAT IS EARTH HOUR ABOUT? At 8.30pm on Saturday 28 March 2015, hundreds of millions of people across the globe will switch off the non-essential lights of homes and businesses for one hour. Earth Hour is a moment to bring voices together, celebrate your achievements and be inspired to do more. It could be a time to announce what you've achieved for the planet, or a time to launch a campaign for the year ahead. Either way, if you can define how you are going to use Earth Hour and what outcome you can achieve through collective action then you are well on your way.

3 Globally, Earth Hour 2014 was the biggest year yet, spanning over 7,000 cities and towns and 162 countries and territories. Some 60 countries have taken the movement well beyond the hour to deliver real, tangible environmental outcomes - such as changing legislation to protect forests and seas, banning plastic bags or installing solar powered lighting and fuel efficient stoves in villages. In 2015, our efforts in Bermuda will be focused on engaging the community and encouraging as many individuals and organizations to get involved. We know the largest grassroots environmental movement in the world has the power to create substantial outcomes - and we invite you to join us in our efforts to effect positive change in our beautiful island home. “Together, we can all turn the inspiration of one hour, into the actions of every hour…” What are you going to do this year to support Earth Hour in Bermuda?

19 Business Participation Earth Hour Supporters

20 HOW TO PARTICIPATE AS A BUSINESS Switch off non-essential lights on Saturday 28 March 2015 at 8:30pm. Make sure non-essential lights in your buildings, facilities and signage are switched off during Earth Hour from 8:30pm to 9:30pm on Saturday 28 March For larger buildings, plan ahead with facilities and building managers to manage the logistics of switching off non-essential lighting for Earth Hour – including decorative lights – in and around your properties. Go beyond the hour with your organization and business practices. Earth Hour is not just for one hour, the point is to go beyond the hour. That means making a commitment to a continual change throughout the year that reduces your impact on the environment, culminating in a celebration of your commitment to a more sustainable future for Bermuda during Earth Hour.

21 To help you begin, here are some ideas: Speak to your marketing department about sponsoring Earth Hour this year or one of Greenrock’s other community projects close to your strategy and heart, which also provide great exposure for your brand. To learn more about these opportunities contact Gordon Johnson at Join us during Earth Hour with your family at Waterfront Properties for the 5K Glow Fun Walk & Run or enter a Glow Team. Set up a Green Team or elect Earth Hour Superheroes for your business. Their job will be to ensure lights are out and appliances are off standby at the end of each working day. Turn off lights after hours in your offices and business facilities or install motion-sensor lighting Install energy saving lights bulbs and devices (e.g. timers on lighting)

22 Minimize printing and photocopying Encourage staff to print out documents and s only when it is absolutely necessary Turn off printers, computers, monitors, microwaves and coffee machines at their respective power points at the end of each day or when unused for long periods (this could shave off 5% of your electricity bills) Provide recycling facilities and encourage staff to use them Involve your staff in everyday change and inspire them to do more for the planet in the workplace and at home Join the Greenrock Green Building Forum or connect with them and ask how they help business, industries and groups change their practices to be more sustainable. Also find out what efforts you can adopt to tackle climate change. For more info, please contact Bryan Adams at
