Earth Hour

Earth Hour is one of the largest environmental events in the world in which people switch off the lights for a full hour at the same time to call attention to climate change and show engagement in environmental protection. Thirty eight members of our Singapore office volunteered to run this event, while the SATO Singapore office and warehouse switched off their lights for an hour every day from March 11 to May 31, 2019.
