#ChangeClimateChange in support of Earth Hour 2016
Community Coordinator

On 19 March we will be supporting Earth Hour, a movement that has massive environmental impact.

This year’s Earth Hour has a global focus on climate change with a commitment to creating change for the better. Help celebrate Earth Hour 2016 by turning off the lights in your house or office for one hour on 19 March at 8:30 pm local time. Thousands of businesses and organisations around the world have stepped forward and made the commitment to support Earth Hour.


As one of the leading financial service providers with a strong presence in Africa, we are committed to making a difference. There are many things we can do as a company and as individuals to reduce the impact of climate change – most especially by using energy wisely. At Standard Bank Group we will be turning off the lights in buildings we own around the world for one hour.

Climate action starts with you. This is our time to #ChangeClimateChange. Visit Earth Hour to register and join the movement to switch off your lights.
