Joining millions of people and companies around the globe, Ali Bin Ali Holding observed Earth Hour 2021 on March 27 between 8.30pm and 9.30pm. All non-essential lights at Ali Bin Ali Tower were switched off to mark the Group’s endorsement of one of the world’s largest public events for the environment.
Most lights of the ABA Head Office, including the ground floor external lights, façade lights, main lobby/corridor area lights, office area lights (except at CCTV camera locations), parking area lights and external signage lights were switched off for an hour.
By taking part in this global lights-out event, ABA Holding reiterates its commitment to taking measures to protect the environment and benefit the planet in the future.
Started by WWF and partners as a symbolic lights-out event in Sydney in 2007, Earth Hour is now held every year on the last Saturday of March. It is a global initiative to spread awareness about environment protection and climate change.
Various public and private entities in Qatar, including government offices, private institutions and companies, including ministries, malls, hotels, offices as well as individuals, observed the event by switching off the lights of buildings and houses.
