Infosys Technologies on Wednesday said it will observe Earth Hour on March 27 by switching off lights at its campuses worldwide.
The Earth Hour at Infosys marks a week-long campaign to support the world's largest global climate change initiative, a statement issued by the company said.
Various departments of the company including security, facilities and IT Department will be supporting this initiative by ensuring that the maximum number of power points are switched off.
Infosys' facilities team will monitor energy savings to gauge the power consumption before and during Earth Hour.
Infoscions have arranged 'Switch-off Kiosks' at food courts to encourage registration and participation in Earth Hour activities, it said.
An 'Earth Habba' (Earth Festival) is being organised, where ecopreneurs - eco-friendly entrepreneurs - will set up stalls to sell green products and services. 'Tips to Take-away', an initiative by employees, will share ten 'earth worthy' tips that individuals can pledge to practice every day.
The employees have also organised 'Fun under Sun' at amphitheatres on campus, where participants can exhibit their talent in 60 seconds. The acts will be filmed and aired on the in-house TV channel - InfyTV.
