WWF Earth Hour 2017: All Telekom Austria Group Subsidiaries Participating in Climate Activity

  • A1 as partner of WWF Earth Hour since its start in 2007
  • 33 A1 Shop across Austria turn off lights of window shops throughout the whole weekend
  • Arsenal Tower in Vienna dimmed between 8:30 PM and 9:30 PM

With its participation in the Earth Hour, A1 is sending a signal towards climate protection. All subsidiaries are joining the activities and are creating awareness for the sustainable topic of the protection of resources.

The dynamic trend towards digitalization demands for more energy consumption and thus involves higher CO2 emissions. Therefore, A1 creates both its infrastructure and digital products and solutions as environmentally friendly as possible. With communication companies, CO2 emissions mostly arise from electricity demand due to its network infrastructure.

WWF Earth Hour is the world´s largest activity for climate protection and takes place this year for the tenth time. Last year, 1,200 famous landmarks, monuments and buildings were dimmed in more than 7,000 cities and communities across 172 countries.
