AMP Capital Shopping Centres Support Earth Hour

AMP Capital Shopping Centres Support Earth Hour

This weekend, the lights will go out at AMP Capital Shopping Centre’s around the country - but all for a good cause. As part of its long-term sustainable retail plan, AMP Capital Shopping Centres are taking part in an international effort to reduce global warming and supporting Earth Hour by turning off their lights for one hour at 8pm on Saturday 29 March.

Earth Hour is an initiative of the conservation group WWF-Australia and was started in Sydney in 2007. This year at least 15 other countries will be taking part.

Earth Hour is asking everyone – whether international icons, major cities, businesses or members of the public – to contribute to the protection of the planet and support the event by turning off their lights and appliances.

The Earth Hour switch-off is one of a number of initiatives AMP Capital Shopping Centres are undertaking in their ongoing plan towards environmental sustainability; others include the use of energy efficient light bulbs in centres, and recycling initiatives which are saving thousands of dollars through the re-use of food scraps, bottles, cardboard and paper.
