On Saturday, March 30th, Carrefour stores across Qatar observed Earth Hour, a global movement where millions of participants join forces for the sake of a greener planet.

Carrefour contributed by switching all dispensable lights including signage off from 8:30pm-9:30pm, effectively saving 440 KW of energy, while essential light sources were dimmed in the interest of customer safety. Laurent Hausknecht, Country Manager at Carrefour Qatar said: “At Carrefour, we take our responsibility as an active corporate citizen seriously and will continue our drive to support environmental causes. Through our actions we hope to inspire others and raise awareness on the need to promote energy conservation, as it’s important that we work together to create change for the better.”

Building on its efforts, Carrefour will also reward customers who choose not to use single-use plastic bags at its checkout counters with 50 points on their MyCLUB digital cards. Carrefour will continue to demonstrate its commitment to the local communities and environment, positively contributing to a wide range of initiatives to create great moments for everyone everyday.
