SM switches off lights for Earth Hour 2022
AS PART of the company’s sustainability efforts, SM Supermalls, through its corporate social responsibility arm SM Cares, is once again joining the world in observing Earth Hour, with this year’s theme, “Shape Our Future,” focusing on how we can work together in halting and reversing climate change and nature loss by 2030. Earth Hour is an annual campaign launched in 2007 by the World-Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) that encourages the turning off of non-essential lights as part of energy conservation efforts for the planet. SM has been joining the campaign every year since it was first held in the country in 2008. This year, SM is one of the official partners of WWF for the Earth Hour Virtual Run, to be held from March 26 to April 22. Aside from this, all SM malls will be joining the light switch-off on March 26 from 8:30 to 9 p.m. Aside from joining the campaign every year, all SM malls are equipped with energy and water conservation facilities. The company also regularly joins tree planting activities, and has waste management initiatives such as Trash-to-Cash, e-waste, and used acid lead batteries collection programs, and the plastic waste collection program with the Plastic Credit Exchange. SM has also been investing more in renewable ener-gy. Eight malls in the country and three in China are now equipped with solar panels, with more to follow in the coming months. SM also pledged to increase its use of renewable energy to 50% of its overall ener-gy usage by year-end. SM’s other sustainability initiatives include the annual Green Film Festival, promoting environmental awareness among students and the youth through films; the AweSMSeas project, pro-moting awareness on the negative impact of plastic waste on seas and oceans; and the International Coastal Cleanup joined by thousands of volunteers every year, to name a few.
