Lights out for climate protection

Earth Hour is an annual occasion for people, cities, and companies to set an example for greater climate protection by switching off their lights for an entire hour. It takes place every year on the last Saturday in March, and this year TOWER185 is naturally involved once again.

On March 25, it will be darker than usual at TOWER185 from 8.30 to 9.30 p.m. As in many other famous buildings in towns and cities, certain lights will be switched off in the office tower at Friedrich-Ebert-Anlage to mark Earth Hour.

The history of Earth Hour began in Sydney, Australia, in 2007, when 2.2 million households switched off their lights for one hour. Launched by WWF, Earth Hour is now the world’s biggest campaign for climate and environmental protection.

TOWER185 has been participating in the initiative for over ten years now. Given its high sustainability standards, the office high-rise believes it is particularly important to draw attention to the climate crisis and to develop facilities solutions that are as low-carbon as possible. After all, the real estate industry has a big responsibility here. Therefore, in recent months a number of energy-saving measures have already been implemented around TOWER185, and the lighting in the common areas has been reduced to a minimum. For Earth Hour, the night design and the PwC logo on the façade will also be deactivated, although the emergency lights will remain in operation for safety reasons.

With Earth Hour, we are making an important statement. Join us and support Earth Hour – with actions great and small.
