Charity in Action
Between 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm on 31 March, China Vanke’s residential communities across China participated in “Earth Hour”- Lights Off Activity. Such was a prelude to a 10-week carbon emission reduction campaign in each of China Vanke’s residential community. On 31 March, a total of 2,260 children from China Vanke’s residential communities registered to be “Earth Guardians”, volunteering to promote carbon emission reduction throughout the community. China Vanke’s official website launched the “Dream Log Book”. The community residents can log on to the “Dream Log Book”, set their own carbon emission reduction targets and start keeping records of their daily carbon emission so as to reduce their carbon footprint.
Mr Wang Shi also joined the carbon emission reduction campaign through a video message he recorded in Boston, US, for the “Earth Hour” activities held in China Vanke’s residential communities nationwide. Vanke Charity Fund has been a sponsor for WWF’s “Earth Hour” in China for two consecutive years. Nearly a million residents in 219 China Vanke development communities across 33 cities had participated in this year’s “Earth Hour”.
