Bendigo and Adelaide Bank will turn off its lights for on Saturday, 26 March 2011 for Earth Hour.

Last year, 4500 communities in more than 128 countries took part, making Earth Hour 2011 the world’s largest global climate change initiative.

Bendigo and Adelaide Bank’s Head of Environment and Sustainability, Trudy Ellery, said Earth Hour gave millions of people the chance to take action against climate change.

“Earth Hour brings together cities, communities, businesses and individuals who share a common vision for creating a more sustainable future through slowing climate change,” Ms Ellery said.

‘’There’s a solution to the effects of climate change, and Earth Hour shows what is possible when people work together.’’

Bendigo and Adelaide Bank has taken part in Earth Hour for the past three years and its offices in Bendigo, Docklands, Adelaide and Sydney will turn off all non-essential lights.

“Earth Hour shows what like minded people can achieve when they work together, and the bank encourages local residents, businesses, schools and community groups to join us in supporting Earth Hour.,” Ms Ellery said.

“Taking part in the initiative is simple, and once you’ve turned off your lights, enjoy the moment and think about how you can help create a greener future,” she said.
