Eton Properties, one of the country’s leading fullrange property developers, joins the world’s largest voluntary switchoff in a worldwide campaign to fight climate change. In partnership with World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Philippines, the 60minute switchoff at Eton Centris on Saturday evening aimed to delivera vital and urgent message on the need for conscious climatechange solutions. “Eton’s participation in this voluntary mass action to save the planet is in solidarity with WWFPhilippines’s programs that are anchored on two main goals—to secure stable and sustainable sources of food, water and energy, and to establish longterm solutions in making the Philippines climate changeresilient,” says Martha Herrera, Eton AVP for Marketing, Public Relations and Corporate Communications. “Climate change does not recognize boundaries, but the most vulnerable are the poorest countries, and the poorest in all countries. Earth Hour is one of the very rare examples that empower people to be part of the global community tackling climate change,” shares Marco Lambertini, director general of WWF International, during the start of WWF’s Earth Hour campaign in the Philippines in February.
