Feb 23: ACT Earth Hour sponsors

We would like to thank all of our sponsors for their generous support of Earth Hour.

Major sponsors

The Canberra Times

The Canberra Times actively supports Earth Hour because we believe that simple things like turning the lights off can start people thinking about how they personally can contribute to the fight against climate change. We’re proud that participation levels in Canberra led the way in 2008 and are hoping for an even better result in 2009.

ACT Government

The ACT Government is committed to leading the local response to climate change, but we need every member of the ACT community to share in this responsibility. Earth Hour demonstrates in a very simple and practical way, that each of us can make a meaningful contribution in responding to climate change. Through the initiative of Earth Hour and others, we are seeing concerted action taking place to help make Canberra a greener city.

ACT & Region Chamber of Commerce and Industry

The Chamber of Commerce supports Earth Hour because business has a significant role in helping to deal with the challenges of climate change. Small steps, such as turning off lights, can lead to much larger savings – both to the environment and to the economy. Canberra is a great place to live and we can all do our bit to help the world survive.

Property Council of Australia

Climate change is no longer a matter for debate, and we can all make a contribution to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. Buildings account for 23 percent of Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions. Working together we can significantly reduce electricity use and help cut Australia’s carbon footprint. That’s why the Property Council supports Earth Hour’s call to action.
