BNP Paribas Real Estate to turn off the lights in support of WWF’s Earth Hour


BNP Paribas Real Estate will once again show its support for tackling climate change by participating in WWF’s Earth Hour on Saturday 25th March.

Over 2m sq ft of prime London office space managed by BNP Real Estate will join the pledge to switch off the lights for one hour at 8.30pm, to highlight the need to reduce global carbon emissions. The properties include Google’s offices at 6 Pancras Square, King’s Cross, and Belgrave House, SW1W; and City landmarks Tower 42 and 200 Aldersgate.

2017 marks the third year that BNP Paribas Real Estate has supported Earth Hour in the UK. The global initiative, now in its 10th year, spans 178 countries and territories, serving as a strong visual reminder of global solidarity against climate change.

John Gethin, sustainability manager at BNP Paribas Real Estate, said: “We hope that by joining other organisations to dim the skyline across London, and across the world, that we will help to drive positive change by highlighting the importance of tackling carbon emissions.  On a practical level, this initiative also provides energy and carbon savings to our clients across our central London managed portfolio.”
