Kinnarps switches of - participates in Earth Hour 2010

The annual climate manifestation Earth Hour that is organised by the WWF takes place for one hour this Saturday between 8.30pm to 9.30pm. Kinnarps participates and switches of the light for a brighter future.

For the second year in a row Kinnarps switches of its lights to show the importance of addressing global climate change. The commitment will be most visible at the three production sites in Kinnarp, Jönköping and Skillingaryd in Sweden where lighting and other electronic equipment will be switched of during the one hour long manifestation. An invitation to participate has also been sent to Kinnarps 200 showrooms and 2500 employees worldwide.

Tomas Ekström, Kinnarps Manager for Quality and Environment, explains Kinnarps commitment:

”It is a symbolic act to participate in Earth Hour. It shows that we care. But even more important is what happens after the manifestation – how we as a company choose to work with the changing climate. We at Kinnarps have decided to systematically lower our environmental impact. We follow and exceed the most strenuous environmental requirements. A long-term sustainable development is not just big words, it is hard work.”
