By turning off the lights for one hour in day-lit spaces, you showcased your dedication to sustainability while saving energy and money. Together our combined efforts managed to save 147, 071 kWh and offset the GHG emissions produced by 8000 cars in one day. While doing all this, we raised awareness about the availability of daylight in offices among a huge pool of industry stakeholders. We definitely couldn’t have achieved all this without your help.
