Earth Hour for Businesses and Landmarks

What your business or landmark can do for Earth Hour:
Help us make a statement for our planet seen around the world.

At 8:30 p.m. your local time on Saturday, March 28, 2020, millions of people around the globe will turn off their non-essential lights for one hour during Earth Hour to show solidarity for and a strong commitment to climate action and protecting our planet.

Businesses and landmarks across America and around the globe have enthusiastically embraced Earth Hour—turning off lights at headquarters, flipping the switch on iconic signage, and urging employees and customers to participate. This single act is provoking discussion and building momentum towards a renewable future.

Earth Hour is a great opportunity for your business or landmark to demonstrate your commitment to the environment, showcase your existing environmental work and engage with your communities. This year, we're asking everyone to turn off your lights and join us in a global movement to recommit to nature by calling for better protection of our wildlife, rivers, oceans, forests and climate. Here are some tips for how your business or landmark can support Earth Hour 2020:
