Crystal International, a Hong Kong based apparel manufacturing giant, has led 11 subsidiary factories in Vietnam, Cambodia, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka in switching off unnecessary lights and encouraging the use of energy-efficient lighting as well as promoting energy saving.
More than 44,000 staff members were part of the move that marked the World Wide Fund for Nature’s (WWF) Earth Hour initiative, one of the largest collective environmental movements.
For nine consecutive years, Crystal International has supported the noble initiative and further wants to influence its staff in adopting such energy saving practices.
“On environmental protection, it is necessary to let more people join us in promoting energy-saving practices to their families and friends, protecting our nature, and eventually achieving massive environmental impact for our planet.” – Crystal International
