Epson rallies support for Earth Hour 2024.

Epson has become the first-ever international corporate partner of Earth Hour.


Earth Hour, known for its iconic “lights off” moment, aims to raise awareness about nature loss and the climate crisis.

Epson has recently announced it is now an official partner, bringing its commitment to inspiring millions worldwide to join the movement and take energy-saving actions for the planet.

Earth Hour, initiated by WWF in 2007, has evolved into the world’s largest grassroots environmental movement, engaging people in over 190 countries and territories.

In 2023, Earth Hour saw over 410,000 hours pledged on its “Hour Bank,” a testament to the growing global support for environmental conservation.

To encourage participation in Earth Hour 2024, Epson and Earth Hour have collaborated to promote simple energy-saving actions on their websites, available in over 26 languages. 

Epson is also leveraging its global network of sales companies to raise awareness about energy conservation in corporate settings.

In Singapore, Epson is a key partner for the Earth Hour Festival 2024 which happened on 23rd March 2024, demonstrating its commitment to sustainability.

Epson has set ambitious sustainability goals, including becoming carbon-negative and eliminating the use of non-renewable underground resources by 2050.

The company has already transitioned to 100% renewable electricity at all its Group sites worldwide since 2023.

Additionally, Epson is dedicated to developing products and services that consume less electricity and reduce environmental impact.

Yasunori Ogawa, Epson’s global president, expressed pride in being Earth Hour’s first International Corporate Partner.

Siew Jin Kiat, Regional Managing Director of Epson Southeast Asia, highlighted the importance of incorporating energy-efficient practices to make a tangible impact on the industry and society.

Yves Calmette, Senior Director of Brand and Network Communications for Earth Hour International, praised the partnership with Epson as a collaborative effort to make Earth Hour 2024 the biggest yet.

Calmette emphasized Earth Hour’s role as a beacon of hope, celebrating solutions and working towards a brighter, more sustainable future for all.
