Go-Green.ae Launches Global Campaign to Promote Earth Hour


Go-Green.ae has initiated an online campaign to promote the Earth Hour, from 8.30-9.30pm local time on Saturday, 28 March 2009. As part of the campaign all people across the planet are welcome to join the call for action in support of the climate change initiative.

Global organisations such as Panasonic, Orange, Toshiba, Cisco, Discover, Dell, HSBC, Google, Emirates Airlines, Marriott, Hotels and Resorts Intercontinental Hotels, Grand Hyatt, Zipcar, Nissan and Mazda share their �Green Innovations’ online.
