Arabian Center and Lamcy Plaza participated in the Earth Hour global initiative by switching off their non-essential lights and encouraging energy conservation on Saturday March 28th, from 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm. Both malls joined Earth Hour to raise awareness of global energy efforts. For 60 minutes, both the malls and their retailers switched off their non-essential lights while consumers held glow-in-the-dark neon light sticks to demonstrate their commitment to environmentally sustainable action.
Commenting on the occasion, Mr. Tim Jones, COO, Arabian Center and Lamcy Plaza, shared, “As one of the oldest community malls in the region we have an ever increasing opportunity, and responsibility as corporate citizens, to be a leader in reducing our impact on the environment. This is an important initiative we have supported over the years, and we are pleased to be participating again. Collectively, we hope we can make a difference towards championing energy sustainability in the region. The program is based on our vision and core values, of enhancing customers’ lives and participating in sustainable programs that deliver economic benefits such as raising awareness of the importance of energy conservation.”
Since its start in 2007, the annual Earth Hour event has grown into the single largest mass participation event in the world with million supporters across countries. “The event only started in 2007 but it has come a long way and it is a good message to carry”, added Jones. The shopping malls also want to support UAE’s efforts to transform itself into a green community and encourage residents to follow in its footsteps by adopting a more environmentally friendly lifestyle to help ensure a better future.
