Going Beyond Earth Hour
Maria Efkarpidis, Director of The Rock Development Group has been appointed Business Ambassadors for the 2011 Earth Hour by Minister for the Environment, Climate Change and Water, Simon Corbell.
Maria Efkarpidis said the Ambassador role is great recognition for the hard work Rock Development Group is putting in to loop.
“I’m really happy to be on board. We’ve been hosting Earth Hour events for several years now. Our role as Ambassadors is to encourage other businesses in the ACT to get behind the great cause.
“Businesses are the biggest contributors of Green House Gas emissions and we can all do our bit to help reduce emissions,” Ms Efkarpidis said.
This year a series awards will be introduced to unearth inspiring Australians who are leading by example and inspiring others to do the same. The inaugural Earth Hour Awards include:
- The Future Makers Award
- The Lifetime Achievement Award
- Workplace Champions Award
- People’s Choice
