Nokia will join Earth Hour
23 Jan 2012
On Saturday 31 March, at 8:30pm, Nokia will switch off lights for Earth Hour at the main office sites around the world. Earth Hour is an awareness raising event organized by WWF aiming to inspire people to live a climate-friendly life and send a message that climate change requires swift decisions. Turning off lights is a way to demonstrate the power of people when working together towards climate awareness.
Nokia has had a separate climate strategy in place since 2006. Our plan looks at the energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions related to Nokia products and operations, and sets reduction targets for all our activities in these areas. Even though Nokia is not an energy intensive company, and most of the greenhouse gas emissions occur in component manufacturing by our suppliers or in the usage of our products, we want to show leadership and take responsibility in raising awareness and promoting best practices. You can find out more about our activities in this area on the Strategy & Reports page on this website.
The greenhouse gas footprint of our phones has been reduced by up to 50% between 2000 and 2010, while introducing new features and capabilities that allow our devices to be used in various new ways. Devices with an excellent camera, music player, navigation, web browser and other features provide you with the opportunity to reduce your personal environmental footprint. Instead of buying, using and charging multiple devices for different purposes, you can have all these functionalities in one Nokia device.
