AECC Switches Off To Go Green

Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) are pleased to announce that they will once again take part in Earth Hour this Saturday.

The landmark North-East venue will join others from across 135 countries around the
world when it “switches off” for an hour this Saturday, 31st March at 8.30pm. Other landmarks taking place in this initiative include the RoyalAlbert Hall, Windsor Castle and York Minster.

WWF say Earth Hour is not about saving an hour’s electricity, it’s about realising that the actions we take, from the energy we use, to the food we buy and water we drink, has an effect on the world.

Individuals, landmarks, businesses and organisations across the world will be joining the AECC in switching off their lights. Last year more than 5, 200 cities and towns
in 135 countries worldwide switched off their lights for Earth Hour 2011 alone, sending a powerful message for action on climate change. It also ushered in a new era with members going Beyond the Hour to commit to lasting action for the planet. Without a doubt, it’s shown how great things can be achieved when people come together for a common cause.

The AECC are delighted to take part once again in the WWF Earth Hour continuing
their eco friendly campaign.

Brian Horsburgh, Managing Director of the AECC said, “AECC are serious about
sustainability, and we feel that Earth Hour is a good way to bring awareness to a good cause, the more people that take part in this event the better.  We have strong green and sustainability policies in place and were proud to win the Northern Star Green Business Award 2011.”
