On 27 March 2010 the Home Office will again support Earth Hour. Non-operational lights will be turned off at our major locations. Last year my Department ran a ‘switch it off’ campaign to coincide with the Earth Hour to encourage staff to switch off lights, computers and printers at work and to participate at home as well. Across several of our major locations the lights were turned off and as a result 2,491 kilogrammes of carbon dioxide was saved compared to a preceding period. We plan to take part in the event in the same way this year.
