This Saturday is WWF's Earth Hour.  Our Social Impact Manager, Scott Sallée shares the steps that we're taking as a business to drive sustainable behaviours.

Society is facing some of its greatest challenges. Climate change, biodiversity and inequality are causing exponential disruption. Businesses, brands and governments are under pressure to respond and citizens are calling for change.  

Now in its 60th year, WWF’s Earth Hour is the moment millions come together for nature, people and the planet – it’s the world’s largest grassroots movement for the environment. 

Iconic landmarks, millions of homes, businesses, entire neighbourhoods and political leaders across the world switch off their lights for an hour to stand in solidarity with each other between 8:30pm and 9:30pm.  

Earth Hour is a moment to celebrate our natural world and draw attention to the issues we all face: from climate change to deforestation. Discover how you can participate from home, practicing safe social distancing during COVID-19 while joining a worldwide community. 

At Dentsu Aegis Network, we work with our clients and partners to transform the role of brands and drive sustainable behaviours such as our work with Brands for Good as well as collaborating with industry to deliver better outcomes for society such as our work with Common Ground and the United Nations. 

To be a credible partner, we’ve been taking steps to ensure our own house is in order. Business as usual is no longer enough; best in class environmental performance is now a license to operate. Our focus is to decarbonise our business through reducing our environmental impacts and switching to renewables.  

As the only marketing and communications group member of the RE100, we procure 100% of our energy from renewable sources across our UK business. Globally, we have achieved 90%, with a target of 100% by the end of 2020.

  • Will you take it further and switch your electricity tariff to a green or renewable?  
  • How will you commit to living more sustainably this year?
