On Saturday, March 28, 2015 at 8:30pm, ITC Incorporated and our employees will join hundreds of millions of people across the globe in switching off the lights of our business premises and our homes for one
hour – Earth Hour, to help change climate change. By taking part in this global ‘LIGHTS OFF’ event we will be acknowledging our commitment to personal and operational actions that go beyond the hour and will benefit the planet in 2015.
We would like to invite you, to join us in what promises to be an amazing and inspiring global celebration of our collective commitment to the planet.
In the past year ITC has been analyzing what we can do to reduce our impact on the earth and improve our business. A few of the changes that we have implemented include:
- Increasing our recycling program in our offices, shipping, and manufacturing areas with the addition of more recycling bins and opportunities to reuse, reduce, and recycle packing materials.
- Reviewed our water usage in manufacturing and testing areas and installed closed systems allowing us to cut down on the amount of waste water.
- Installed LED lighting in our manufacturing areas to improve the quality and quantity of light for our team members while reducing our electricity usage and cost. Within most of our office areas we have removed at least some of the fluorescent tube lighting in the ceiling fixtures and rely more on our LED desk task lights.
In 2015 ITC plans to continue to look at ways our company can operate more efficiently, waste less, and reduce our environmental footprint as our commitment goes beyond the hour for Earth Hour.
Sustainable practices aren’t just good for the bottom line. We all have a stake in the future of our planet and must learn to operate in ways that don’t deplete our world’s limited natural resources.
Earth Hour began as a single-city initiative – in Sydney, Australia – in 2007 and has since grown into a global movement with hundreds of millions of people from more than 7,000 cities and towns in 162 countries/territories across every continent switching off their lights for Earth Hour, creating history as the world’s greatest environmental action.
Participating in Earth Hour on Saturday, March 28 at 8:30-9:30 p.m. is easy, fun and absolutely free – just turn off your lights!
