Telus to Support Earth Hour 2012 by Turning Off Its Lights Across Canada

Earth Hour takes place this Saturday evening to address climate change, and Telus and its team members plan to join the cause. In a press release posted earlier today, the company noted it will turn off lights for 60 minutes across its 27 major buildings across Canada:

“By participating in Earth Hour, we are joining the global village in raising awareness of the need for us to work as one to support our environment,” said Josh Blair, executive vice-president, TELUS Human Resources. “Earth Hour is yet another way for the TELUS team to stand and be counted as we continue to do our part each and every day to contribute to environmental sustainability.”

Telus has also encouraged its 40,000 ‘team members’ (employees) to do the same. Other recent environmental initiatives undertaken by Telus include their ‘trade-in’ program that offers up to $200 in credit for your old cellphone.

Do you have any plans for Earth Hour?
