At 8.30 pm local time on 19 March, lights went out as people in 178 countries celebrated Earth Hour. The Pico Group fully supported this landmark event, with nearly 50 Pico offices and Group subsidiaries in 40 major cities around the world participating. But Pico’s commitment didn’t end there: in the spirit of Earth Hour, all Pico offices and affiliates around the globe have now made energy-saving practices routine.

Here are a few of the pledges made by our offices around the world:

“We turn all our lights out during lunchtime. After office hours, security guards mount patrols to ensure that non-essential lights have been switched off. Our staff are highly energy-savvy, and only switch on the lights and air-conditioning for their own work zones.” - Pico Beijing and Pico Hong Kong

“Our staff is well-trained to be carbon-conscious. The lights in our meeting rooms, aisles, and storage areas are always switched off while not in use. The last associate to leave the office every day checks the whole area again to make sure all power and electric systems are shut down.”- Pico Taiwan
