HSBC Bank Malta will once again join other HSBC Group sites globally to mark the annual Earth Hour in 2022. HSBC Malta will be turning off lights at its Operations Centre in Qormi, its Head Office in Valletta and the HSBC Global Services Contact Centre in Swatar. HSBC has been a firm and active supporter of the Earth Hour movement since 2009.
Earth Hour is held every year on the last Saturday of March, which this year will be 26th March. Between 20:30 and 21:30 HSBC Malta, in conjunction with supporters from more than 190 countries and territories, will take action to show support for our planet, raise awareness of unsustainable energy consumption practices and encourage the public to join in on the events that take place globally.
Simon Vaughan Johnson, CEO of HSBC Bank Malta, said: “The HSBC Malta Foundation has supported our bank to focus on aligning our activities to help in the creation of a sustainable future. Our Corporate Sustainability agenda focuses on making a positive impact on our environment, communities and economy. Joining Earth Hour is not only a symbol of solidarity, it actually shows our sincere intent in becoming catalysts of change for a better tomorrow. Beyond this symbolic act, HSBC Group has also taken on the challenge of ensuring that our operations will be net zero by 2030 and that our financed emissions achieve net zero by 2050 or sooner.”
