Turn the lights off and consider the earth : Hitachi global lights-off campaign

On March 19, 2016, Hitachi participated in "Earth Hour" conducted by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), and turned off its signboards illumination, interior and exterior lighting at manufacturing plants and offices in many parts of the world where Hitachi sites are located for one hour from 20:30 to 21:30 local time, and considered the earth.

Furthermore, for an extension period from March 14 until 18, Hitachi called for lights off, and 250 sites of the Hitachi Group in 23 countries participated in this initiative and was able to reduce electricity consumption of approximately 37,000 kWh *1 in the period of 6 days.

*1
An approximate reduction in electricity consumption of 37,000 kWh corresponds to a CO2 emission reduction of approximately 20t-CO2.
※Emissions are calculated based on the CO2 emission coefficients by country/ region in CO2 Emissions From Fuel Combustion (2013 edition) published by the International Energy Agency.
