SM Supermalls, SM Cares Join The Annual Earth Hour 2023

The annual lights off a.k.a. Earth Hour 2023 will commence today, March 25 and SM Supermalls and SM Cares are joining this year's Global Lights Switch Off. This is from 830PM-930PM. They are also renewing their commitment to environmental stewardship.

This year's theme- is "Creating the Biggest Hour for Earth," and those who want to participate are encouraged to spend 60 minutes doing positive for the planet, in addition to switching off their lights. 

SM Supermalls has always been a part of Earth Hour ever since it was initiated by WWF in the year 2008 in the country. 

This day also marks the start of the WWF's Virtual Earth Hour Run, a self-paced run supported by SM Cares, to be held from March 25 to April 30, 2023. The run aligns with SM Supermalls' bid to make "Earth Hour, Any Hour" as participants are encouraged to adopt an eco-friendly lifestyle by running and win prizes along the way. Joiners are also encouraged to use the hashtag #BiggestHourForEarth and #EarthHourVirtualRun

SM Supermalls has also been pushing to minimize its carbon footprint in support of the global green movement through various programs ranging from responsible energy consumption to investing in renewable energy. 

For instance, more than 50% of the energy consumed by SM malls all over the country now comes from renewable sources. In terms of solar energy usage, SM now has 12 malls equipped with energized solar panels, with SM Mall of Asia as the latest mall to receive a solar panel installation, which has a capacity of 2.003 MWp.

SM has also been recognized for exceeding compliance RA7920 or the New Electrical Engineering Law, which regulates the practice, licensing, and registration of electrical engineers and electricians. This is proof that SM is operated and maintained only by highly qualified engineers. 

SM Cares' sustainability initiatives include the Trash-to-Can Market and the Plastic Waste Collection program, which encourage responsible solid waste disposal among Filipinos; the annual Green Film Festival which promotes environmental awareness among students and the youth; and the International Coastal Cleanup which encourages stakeholders to do their part in keeping our seas and oceans clean.
