Earth Hour 2018: Messer is turning off the lights for the environment
The largest privately owned industrial gases specialist is turning off the lights at all its sites in Germany (Bad Soden, Krefeld, Salzgitter and Siegen) for an hour at 20:30 on the 24th of March 2018. With this measure the family run company participates in Earth Hour 2018.
Earth Hour is a global movement for climate and environmental protection. It was started in Australia in 2007. Since then, private premises, public buildings and even landmarks have been switching off their lights for an hour each year. The aim of Earth Hour is to raise public awareness about climate change. 7,000 cities in 184 countries took part in Earth Hour in 2017.
